Wild in Art Snowdogs Trail – and I’m on it…

This is from the Kirklees Snowdogs website:
For eight whole weeks in Autumn 2022, towns and villages across Kirklees will brought to life by a pack of dazzlingly decorated Snowdog sculptures, creating a spectacular event for our entire community to enjoy.

Based on The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, the classic animated story by Raymond Briggs, Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees will bring the magic of the Snowdog character to life through an extraordinary public art trail.

A free event for all, Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees will show off the very best creative talent from local, regional and national artists. Thirty uniquely designed Snowdogs, along with thirty mini sculptures, will be on display around Kirklees for visitors to discover and enjoy as part of a world class public arts event never seen before in West Yorkshire.

So as not to reveal too much before the grand launch, the participating artists have been asked to share details of their sculptures, but nothing more. So here’s one of the cheeks of my piece, entitled (Snow) Dogrose. This being Yorkshire, it’s a white rose (of course!)
