It seemed like I got a lot of big white dogs on the most recent Danger Dog trip.

All of the above paintings are hand-painted in Nepal by endangered Nepali signboard painters whose work is being replaced by digital imagery and mass-printed signage.    These are American Dogs and are all people's pets that have generated Nepali jobs.

Each signboard is approximately one foot square, is synthetic enamel on metal and is suitable to be hung indoors or out.  

You can commission a portrait of your own pet, each commission will generate work for 3 Nepali artists.  You pay nothing until you choose which one you prefer.   Please send a photo of your pet (dog, cat, horse, chicken, cockatoo, ferret, turtle -- you name it) and help support this Fair Trade art project.  

Contact me at ampage1@gmail.com for more information, and be sure to go to my website at NepalDog.com to see more artwork by these Nepali artists.
