The Dogs are marking new territory this week by exhibiting at the Pacific Palisades Public Library.
Cats have their own space along with a few birds and another Bunny. Altogether 14 artists from Nepal are represented in 48 hand painted signs on metal.
If you would like to immortalize your pet, please send me a photo. I will give the photo to 3 sign painters in Nepal who will hand paint your pet on metal. These artists' work is disappearing at a rapid rate due to technology. I pay fair trade wages, you get a choice of 3 portraits and 3 artists get work.
I accept no money up front, if you are not pleased with one of the paintings, you owe nothing. All artists are paid fair trade wages in any case.
I will keep you in the loop while I am in Nepal through this Danger Dog Blog, showing works in progress and bits about the artists, their families and Nepal's fascinating culture in general.
Just let me know what you would like your Nepal Art Dog (or Cat) to say and if you have a preference of style (folk art, colorful, realistic, etc.). Send your photo to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I leave in late October, 2013, and will return in early December, 2013, in plenty of time for holiday orders.
More information about how to order is on the NepalDog.com website, along with many, many breeds of dogs and cats.
