Saints Non and Dewi sketch

I want to do this as a painting. Saint Non was a Welsh noblewoman. She was raped and gave birth to Saint Dewi, who became a bishop and is patron saint of Wales.

The dragon is the symbol of Wales, but I don't know; some folks won't like a dragon appearing in a Catholic religious art symbolizing something other than evil... but that may be all the more reason to do it, to engage this question. What do you think?

I personally think you should go for it. :) That will be an amazing painting!

I've tagged you as a Stylish and Versatile blogger over at my blog!

Thank you very much, for both things! I don't know if I can carry on the tag, however... I mostly look at blogs I'd be afraid to tag, you know?

Haha, yes, I know. It took me FOREVER to find people to tag... Hence the reason I did the "random bloggers I just found" part. I just bloghopped around for an hour. :P Its amazing how few "small bloggers" I follow, lol! :)
