Live from Kathmandu: New works from Nara

These were not dry, but they are fabulous.  Nara really outdid himself this trip.

Buster Fearless, the Jack Russell Terrier, by Nara, just blew me away with his one-eyed smile.  

Someone is going to have a hard choice ahead.


Max, the long-haired Dachshund, is as handsome as can be in his Nepali close up by Nara.

Grady Abber is a beautiful Cavelier King Spaniel.  I am going to have to make a spelling change on his name, though.  I call Nara my 'dog's dog' artist.  He really makes them shine.

Bentley is just beautifully painted in his portrait by Nara.  

Gee Gee the Girly Girl looks fine with her English Staffordshire smile.   Nara really captured her unique beauty.

Nacho, the Lhasa Apso, is quite lovely in this first final by Nara. 

The chalk lines that Mr. Maharjan uses when he does his lettering will be erased, of course.

Snoopy the Dachshund is absolutely wonderful in person.   That purple muzzle, the gleam in his eye, all captured by Nara.

Mr. Itchy Stichy the Pit Bull Whippet mix is well-represented here in all his pirate glory.

Jenny the Jindo is as pretty as a picture in this dramatic portrait by Nara with her red/gold hair and Nara's trademark blue background.

Roy the rescue dog has a distinctive split lip from early misadventures at a dog hoarder's compound.   Nara paints Roy in a relaxed mood that befits this dog in his happy new home.

This is what you can expect when you honor your dog (or cat or bunny) with a Nepal Art Dog portrait.  The time to order is now.   No obligation to buy, but I bet you will not be able to resist!  You will receive your choice of portrait in time for the holidays.   Orders accepted through the end of November.

Only 1 more day to order!


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 am here in November, 2012, 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 Fall 2012 trip.



To order, 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 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 or find out more at

Let's keep these artists painting.
