Dublin and GP are two handsome and inseperable Labradoodles. They make a great double Danger Dog portrait. By Megh Raj Thapa, Sufraj Khadka and Baba (clockwise from top left). Apparently there are many ways to spell Labradoodle in Nepali!
This Zen Yorkie cuts a fine figure in this work in progress by Indra. He was supposed to have these done by August 8, and he is still putting on the final touches! It is part of the fun hearing why things are not ready.
Imagine my delight when I came upon all of these Danger Dogs drying in the sun outside of Sagar's studio. Imagine my delight if they had all been finished and dry (since some of these were ordered in July!).
If you would like to have your dog (cat, horse, chicken , bunny, etc.) immortalized on metal here in Nepal, now is the perfect time to order. I will be here in November to order more Danger Dogs and Cats.
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 accepted for the Winter 2012 trip.
HOW TO ORDER
To order, please send me a photo of your pet. I will give it to three different artists, giving you achoice of 3 paintings and three artists 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.
While I am in Nepal, your pet will be featured on the Danger Dog Blog, as I stop into the artists' studios and document the works in progress.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or find out more at www.NepalDog.com.
Let's keep these artists painting.
American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.
