Border Collies are a lovely breed, and there are many great portraits still available in the Nepal Art Dog project.
Lucy is a lucky Border Collie relaxing with her favorite toy in this portrait by Shantosh. Shantosh disappeared shortly after I found him, and I would love to find him for new works. However, this great example is still available. I will continue trying to find Shantosh.
Tippy by Shahi is a young handsome Border Collie. The Shahi Studio is in Pokhara, Nepal, and this was one of the last he painted while being evicted from his Lakeside studio. The subtle aqua background plays up Tippy's black and white charm. The Devengari script reads: 'Dog here be aware' in Nepali.
Grover the Bearded Collie by Nara is dramatic with its dark blue background and Grover's tongue is a traditional motif for a Nepali Danger Dog sign.
I truly believe that Punam should be working for Walt Disney Studios. His cartoonish portraits really capture this enlightened dog. You have to love that eyebrow.
Another version of Lucy the Border Collie was done by Shree who chose to paint the full length Lucy. Shree puts his dogs in Elysian Fields, and Lucy looks quite happy here.
Ernie the Border Collie by Shree Laimachhain 1'x1' synthetic enamel on metal 2011 Available
Ernie has an impish smile and Shree took full advantage. The little foot that merges into the N in "Dangers Dog" makes me smile. Again Shree placed this Border Collie in green fields.
