Hari Timsina painted this portrait of Duke in November 2009. Hari features the lighter more hypnotic side of Duke the Weimaraner. This painting is on exhibit at the Terrence Rogers Gallery in Santa Monica. Contact trogart.com to purchase.
Also by Hari Timsina, this portrait of Duke can be found at Prudence Designs, at 228 W. 18th St NY NY, in Manhattan, right next to Barney's. Their website is at PrudenceDesigns.net.
Each of these hand-painted signs are approximately one square foot, using synthethic enamel paint on recycled metal, they can be hung indoors or out. You choose what you would like them to say.
You can immortalize your pet on metal with a soulful portrait from Nepal. These talented signboard artists are seeing their livelihoods disappear as digital imagery replaces the lovely traditional artwork on metal.
Send me a photo of your pet and I will give it to 3 signboard artists, giving you a choice of 3 portraits. 3 people get work, you get 3 choices, museum shops get folk art!
You send no money up front. If you do not like your pet's portrait, you pay nothing. All 3 artists are paid fair trade wages whether you choose their work or not. Pay only if you are satisfied.
I have commisioned over 1500 pieces to date, making a real difference to these artists.
I will return from Nepal in early December with new works in plenty of time to deliver for the holidays.
Order your Danger Dog (or Cat or Turtle, Chicken or Hamster) today! Give someone you love a portrait of someone they love.
Write with questions or comments to ampage1 (at) gmail.com or go to the NepalDog.com website.
It is easy to order and I am leaving for Nepal soon. Send me that photo of your pet. You will be glad you did!
