Emma, the Catahoula Leopard Dog, frolics in the snow. This painting is by Sabala. Catahoulas are the 'State Dog of Louisiana' and known as hunters. It is not unusual for a Catahoula to have at least one blue eye.

The hand-painted signboard art of Nepal is quickly disappearing, being replaced by modern mass-production images. You can support this endangered art form by ordering a Nepal Art Dog of your own, or by buying an already existing signboard.
These Danger Dogs featured today are still available, ranging in price from $150 to $200 each. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments. Also check out my website at NepalDog.com to see what else is available.
This Fair Trade art project is for pet lovers who collect art and want to make a difference in these struggling artists' lives. Each commission generates work for at least 3 different Nepali artists giving 3 people work, and you 3 portraits of your pet.
