Pokhara Days
Final Danger Dogs from Jit Gurung

Miscellany from Pokhara

You may remember that the artist Shree Laimachhaine 'went out' to South Korea last year to make more money for his family.

Shree's wife Bimala has turned his studio into a school supply shop.   He has another two years on his contract before returning home to Nepal.   You can read more about Shree and his struggle to survive as a signboard artist here.

Beauty Parlor signs like this are disappearing at an alarming rate.   They have their own charm, but cannot compete with...

Ashton Kutcher and his sari-clad beauty printed on plastic advertising this tailor's shop.   Call me crazy but I prefer the charm of the hand painted.   No one will make a man look like Ashton Kutcher and certainly not a Nepali tailor.

Here is an example of what you might expect when you include your pet in the Nepal Art Dog project.   ShuShu the Yorkie by three different signboard artists.   Baba, Megh Raj and Amar did the honors.  

Please check out the Nepal Dog YouTube Channel:   http://www.youtube.com/user/NepalDog

You will be happy you did!

Stay tuned.   More tomorrow.

Now is the time to order:   Be ahead of the Pack!


I am back in Nepal for the 11th Danger Dog trip and am accepting commissions now.   I'll be back to the states in late September with your orders.


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 ampage1@gmail.com or find out more at www.NepalDog.com.

Let's keep these artists painting.
