One of my favorite artists, Sanjib Rana, likes horses as much as I do! When I first met him, he already had an extensive collection of photos of horses in order to paint them for his ex-patriot clients in Kathmandu.
I gave him free rein to paint 8 horses on one of my Fair Trade art forays into Nepal, and he did not disappoint.
Here Sanjib extends the bottom of the painting by placing this horse behind a brick wall.
Here Sanjib gives this lovely horse a golden glow.
These works are a bit larger than the standard signboard offered on this blog. Sanjib's portraits of horses are 12" by 15" and painted on metal with synthetic enamel.
Nepal has no ocean, but this horse enjoys running through the surf.
Another horse given an idyllic setting by Sanjib.
White horse in a paddock by Sanjib Rana.
From an earlier series, Sanjib wrapped this in newspaper before it was totally dry, but I rather like the effect of the newsprint and think it added to the piece.
This white horse is from the same early series, painted in 2007, and has a dramatic red border.

I couldn't resist putting this at the end of this blog!
These paintings on recycled metal and can be hung indoors or out. Each of these paintings are currently available for $160 each. Or you can send me a photo of your own horse and I will give that photo to 3 different artists, giving 3 artists work and you a wider choice. The extras will be sold in museum shops, retail stores, art galleries or here on line.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, to place an order or with any comments or questions. My website is at www.NepalDog.com, and there are more horses and other pets there.
