Megh Raj Thapa is obviously in fine fettle this trip. While still technically a 'work-n-progress' this charming double portrait of Sam and Wilbur (a pair of White Labrador Retreivers) includes a bright blue curtain suggesting a vaudeville act. It still needs lettering, but it a fine example of Danger Dog art.
Again, Giggles hits center stage in this early work. I can't wait to see the finished pieces by Baba. He has his work cut out for him against the charming works by Megh Raj. But Baba is not finished yet.
Above we have K-Lev, a Canaan Dog. One of the oldest breeds of dogs, the Canaan was cast to the desert in Biblical times, and is an excellent herder and watchdog. From one of the most strikingly beautiful photos ever, I have high hopes that Baba will capture this dog's intent gaze.
If you are lucky enough to be in Los Angeles before the end of December, you can see 60 Nepal Art Dogs at The Loft at Liz's Gallery at 435 S. La Brea LA 90036. Part of an exhibit titled "Fair Trade", a total of 28 artists are represented in the exhibit so you can get an idea of their varying styles.
Time is running short!!!
