Why I love Nepal - dogs on gates!
Spaniels from Nepal Art Dogs - Which would you choose?

Ferret Art from Nepal

Ferrets, though I am not sure they exist in Nepal, make a great signboard.

Clooney the Ferret as painted by Sagar in Kathmandu.   This cute ferret caused some consternation among the artists because they didn't know what to write in Nepali.   Who knows what they ended up with as a translation.

As you can see, these artists can paint any type of pet from Afghans to Zimbabwe Zipperbacks!  

These artists are losing work to digital mass-produced signage.   Traditionally painted on recycled metal, using synthetic enamel, these paintings are meant to be hung out of doors.

By sending me a photo of your pet, I will give each piece to at least 3 different artists, giving you a choice of works, and giving 3 artists work.  You pay nothing until you decide which of the 3 you would like.   You also have some input into the type of artist you like and what you would like it to say.

My next trip will be sometime this summer, returning in mid-August. 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions at ampage1@gmail.com.   You can also see additional works by these artists at my website NepalDog.com.
