I am still slowly building my new website, trying to include all the many, many breeds of dog that have participated in the Danger Dog fair trade art project.
Enzo the Vizsla puppy by Sufraj Khadka 2008 12"x12" synthetic enamel on metal.
Enzo is the only Vizsla commissioned so far in the Danger Dog art project. But he is a handsome pup.
Also available is this adorable version of Enzo in the grass. His original photo was taken on a car seat.
In those early days, I made 4 of each custom portrait instead of 3. So Enzo's lucky owner got one and these are the three others.
Vizsla's are a hunting breed from Hungary. Renowned for their pointing and retrieving, their distinctive reddish short-hair coat is beautiful. They need a lot of exercise and the breed has been around since the Middle Ages.
You can purchase these paintings at the NepalDog.com website. More information here.
This hand-painted art form is fast disappearing in Kathmandu, as it already has in most parts of the world. I pay fair trade wages, the artists get to paint again, pet lovers get a choice of three paintings for each commission, and I get to help Nepali artists make a living. Everybody is happy. Rescue dogs from America get to rescue artists from Nepal!
Now is the time to order: Be ahead of the Pack! Orders now being accepted for the Spring 2012 trip.
Please send me a photo of your pet. I will give it to three different artists, giving you a choice of 3 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.
Let me know what you would like it to say.
Let me know what style of portrait you would prefer: naive, realistic, colorful, etc.

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!
