Live from Kathmandu: The final days

The final Danger Dogs and Cats are slowly arriving and filling up every space in my Kathmandu kitchen.

Beware of Cat folk art from Nepal
Quilty by Suf and Sagar, Tigger by Megh Raj and Lily by Shahi and Sagar fill a quiet corner.

Folk art Mastiff and Folk Art Black Lab
Max the Mastiff (by Punam) and Maggie the Chocolate Lab (by Sanjib) face off in the corner.

Folk art Chiweenie - half Chihuahua & half Dachshund
Jackal the Chiweenie (by Sagar, Jit Gurung and Megh Raj) hold court over my husband's shoes.

Bo the Nepali Jungle Cat
This is Bo, a very large Danger Cat, approximately 32 pounds.   He was found as an orphaned kitten up in the mountains of Nepal and was brought to the care of a local nurse, where he has resided ever since.

He is enjoying his moment in the sun.   Bo is a Nepali Jungle Cat but he is a big pussycat to me.

Time has run out if you would like to order for this trip.   Next trip is tentatively scheduled for the end of October, 2013, returning the first week in December, 2013.

How to commission YOUR pet's portrait on metal:

Now is the time to order:   Be ahead of the Pack!   I am in Nepal right now giving photos to the artists.   Cut off for this trip's orders is May 20, 2013.   I will be back in plenty of time for Father's Day orders.

1. 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.

2. Let me know what you would like it to say.

3. Let me know what style of portrait you would prefer:   naive, realistic, colorful, etc.

4. Tell me your pet's name and breed.   

5. Send your photo to me at:  
That's it !

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!


The cost is $250 plus shipping.   Shipping is around $18 per sign (to and from the US).   And 9.75% California sales tax for California residents.  
Pay after choosing your portrait.  
Multiple pets on one sign cost more ($325 for Double, $400 for Triple).


Let's keep these artists painting.
