Live from Kathmandu: It's Saturday

Saturday is the one day a week that the Nepali's take off.   Sunday is a work day. 

These photos were taken in Jawelekhel, not far from the Central Zoo.   The little girls were in their Saturday best.

This little girl is going to be a heart breaker!

Little girls all over the world like pink!

And this proves it!

Pretty in Pink.  

I have been busy as well trying to pick up some signs from my artists.   Here Baba is busy painting the schoolbus.   I really like the humor in his baby with a paint brush that he uses to advertise his shop.

Good news for Ram Krishna.   He is getting married in two weeks.   He assures me that he will get right to work after the blessed day.   We shall see.   He is 25 years old, and his marriage was arranged by his parents, as is usual in Nepal.   The system seems to work in many cases and I wish him a long and happy marriage.

Sufraj was off doing other work when I dropped by.   I could photograph this work in progress of Scamper, the Norwich Terrier, through the window of his shop.   It is nearly half finished and is looking good.  I'll be by to see more of Sufraj' progress later today.

I am back in Nepal for the 9th Danger Dog trip and am accepting commissions now.   I'll be back to the states in early June, just in time for Father's Day presents.  


To order, please send me a photo of your pet.   I will give it to three different artists, giving you a choice of paintings and three people will get work.   Each painting is about one square foot and is on metal with synthetic enamel paint.   These can be hung indoors or out, be framed or unframed.

Satisfaction is guaranteed as I accept no money up front.   If you do not like one of the three, you pay nothing, and the 3 artists are paid in full in any case.   Let me know what you want it to say and that's it!

Send your photo to or find out more at

Let's keep these artists painting.

American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.
