During these Dog Days of Summer - record highs here in the Southwest, and many fires burning out of control - I will feature Dogs at the Beach.
Here's the lovely G.G., a black standard poodle on her day at the beach. Hari Timsina had fun with this one. If you'd like this one, let me know as she is still up in San Luis Obispo waiting for her ride back to Santa Monica. But anything can be arranged.
Again we have G.G. with her Hawaiian Lei waiting for Govinda to add her lettering.
G.G. is not the only Danger Dog on the beach.
St. Ebba, a Doberman Pinscher, also enjoys the beach. Clockwise from top left: Dilip, Hari Prasad and Sabala. Only Dilip's painting of her romp on the beach is still available.
Willow is a Labrador Retriever who lives in Malibu and loves the water. Shiva paints her in her lei. The red lettering is Tibetan script. The painting is by Shiva Thapa of Pokhara.
Willow again. This time by Sagar.
All of these Dogs enjoying their Dog Days of Summer are still available. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to know more about these paintings or any aspect of the Danger Dog project.
Basically, this is a Fair Trade Art Project that supports endangered Nepali signboard artists and various charities. Micro-finance though art patronage.
