Nepal Dogs to the Boxer Rescue!

Danger Dogs on Display

Daddy, an Art Dog who guards the Frank Pictures Gallery in Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, is a Catahoula Leopard Dog.   Painted by Sabala, his signboard warns visitor dogs that this is his turf.  

Here's a close up of Daddy upstaging the artist (and actor) Billy Zane, whose stunning show just closed last week at Laurie's gallery.   Now Daddy's picture is upstaging Stefanie Schneider's "Instant Dreams" opening Saturday.

Chloe the Poodle for Peace by Sabala and Shree adorns the bookshelf of Chloe's lucky owners.  

Here is Sophie times 3.   This lovely white standard poodle certainly has pride of place.   By Asha, Sagar and Karma (from top to bottom).

This is Star (top) by Punam, and FloJo by Sabala (below).   Two better-looking Italian Greyhounds would be hard to find.  

Annie and Pitzel warn intruders!   Paintings by Sabala and Vinosh (top to bottom).   They are a Pomeranian and a Papillion.

Waterfall House Dog
This Enlightened Dog (Floy by Amar) keeps watch over the Waterfall House near Woodstock, New York.  Floy enjoys perhaps the only vacation rental in America with its very own waterfall (Niobe Falls).   Go to  www.WaterfallRental.com for more information.   It is a wonderful place to enjoy the Catskills.

There are many ways and places to display the Danger Dogs.  

How to order:

Now is the time to order YOUR Danger Dogs.  (Or cats, horses, etc. as the case may be.)   These make wonderful and unique presents.   Give someone you love a portrait of someone they love this Christmas.

Each commission will be given to 3 different struggling Nepalese signboard artists.   You get a choice of 3 paintings and 3 people get work!   Your satisfaction is guaranteed as you pay nothing up front.   If you don't like any of your choices, you pay nothing.   The artists are paid fair trade wages in all cases.   I sell the others on line, in museum shops and retail stores.   Everybody wins.

These are perfect for pet lovers who collect art who want to make a difference!   Micro-finance through art patronage.

This gives people work rather than a hand-out and keeps these artists hand-painting signs when most of their work is now computer-generated.    The Danger Dog project has commissioned over 1500 signboards to date and has made a significant difference in these artists' lives.

Any questions, please contact me at ampage1@gmail.com.  

I will be leaving for Kathmandu soon, and will return in early December in plenty of time to deliver for the holidays.  

These portraits are approximately one foot square, synthetic enamel on metal.   They can be hung indoors or out.
