Live from Kathmandu: Finals from Sagar

It is getting close to the end of this twelfth Nepal Art Dog extravaganza and Sagar finished a few pieces early - by about ten hours.

Dr. Watson, the Scottish Terrier, as a final by Sagar.  

If you scroll back a post, you can see how unfinished this painting was just yesterday.   Of course, I could see that it was a beauty, but was unprepared for how just darn pretty the blue coat of the Dr, the trees and the lettering could be in just one short day.

Snoopy the Dachshund in his final portrait by Sagar.   He is a handsome dog and I think Sagar did a great job with this one.

Max the long-haired Dachshund is a soulful dog in this close up portrait by Sagar.

Here Sagar does some finishing touches on Grady Abber, a charming King Charles Spaniel.

Sagar is an amazing artist, and we had some time to talk.   His father is one of the famed Gurkhas that fought for Britain.   His dad and his sister now both live in London where the father has retired and his sister is staff nurse a hospital.

He is the only artist in his family.

I'm making this post short, as we are about to lose electricity here in Kathmandu.   Kathmandu is up to 56 hours a week with scheduled power cuts aka 'load-shedding', and many more unscheduled ones as well.

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 over for this trip, but March 2013 is just around the corner, and I will be returning for new orders.   

No obligation to buy, but I bet you will not be able to resist!

Orders are now closed for this trip.

If you would like to have your dog (cat, horse, chicken , bunny, etc.) immortalized on metal here in Nepal, please send me a photo at ampage1@gmail.com. I am here in November, 2012, to order more Danger Dogs and Cats and this trip is now closed, but I will be back in Nepal in March, 2013, and will add your pet to the project.

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 Spring 2013 trip.

HOW TO ORDER

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

Let's keep these artists painting.
