Duke, 'pented by Amar', has a lovely yellow background, and an intent stare.
This very 'Dangers Dog' is Jasper by Shree. Available.
I took this photo of a Weimaraner staring intently up a palm tree at a squirrel outside of a garage sale. By Baba, signed and lettered by Birju. Available.
This is one of the few Baijanath paintings I have available. This is Duke again.
And this is Duke by Hari. It broke my heart to sell this one. Look at the eye on the right side. Look at the charming Be Ware of Dog on the left ear. It was a good customer, otherwise I would still have this baby.
This is Jasper the Weimaraner by Arjun Karki. This is haunting in it's innocence. It's nice to notice the way Shree (see previous) and Arjun handled the same photo. Also available. Arjun Karki is collected by a lot of people. Arjun's work is in the collection of Ed Moses and Patricia Chidlaw.
That's it for today. Please feel free to contact me. Or you can follow me on Twitter! I'm listed as DangerDogs. I'd love the feedback.
I also have some good news. I just went to Mama Hillybeans and 109 Danger Dogs (and Cats and Birds and a Goat or two) will be on exhibit. Here's the link to the show. http://mamahillybeans.com/
One of the cool things about this place, aside from the delicious food and cheerful service, is that they have great music! Check out their line up. If you are in the Mohave Desert, come and see them!
Ever heard of a Catahula Leopard Dog? They are the official State Dog of Louisana. They can climb trees to a height of 30 feet (almost 10 meters for you Europeans). Daddy is a lovely example, with a true 'Joie de Vivre.'
Above is the 'Lucha Daddy' by Arjun Karki. Daddy has one blue eye and one brown, a common trait in a Catahula.
This is a wall-eyed Daddy by Ramesh of Om Art. What's that on his back?
Here's a Daddy-of-a-different-color. This is by Chandra Chaudhury, and I love the collar.
This is Daddy the Catahula Leopard Dog by Baba (signed Birju -- who lettered the sign).
Happy Daddy! He loves to get out and jump. I wish I could have so much fun on a walk!
Comments and questions welcome. Please write me at email@example.com or see the Danger Dogs Fair Trade Project at www.NepalDog.com PS: The 4 featured portraits of Daddy are available!
First, I'd like to introduce to Foo, a Nepali pug, and his signboard. Foo is a lucky dog living in Boudha.
His collar is handmade in Nepal. By Amar Shrestha.
This pug is signed Birju, but I believe the artist is an Indian named Baba.
Above by Mohan. This Nepali pug is featured in the Everest Kennel Club's 2008 calendar.
This pug is by Jit Gurung of Munal Arts. His work is reminiscent of R. Crumb.
And last, but not least, is Queenie the Pug by Sagar. This is a particular favorite of mine and you can probably see why.
All of these pugs are available by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. I will be going back to Nepal in June to make more of these Nepali Pup Artworks. Let me know if you want your dog or cat to have their portraits done by these artists.
