Live from Kathmandu: Mo Mo the Lhasa Apso

Live from Kathmandu: More works on line

Everyone is busy putting the final touches on their Danger Dogs.

Folk art dog portrait
Izzy the Best Friend by Megh Raj

Izzy is on the right path, as Megh Raj has almost finished his portraits.   Just the writing is missing on this one.  

Folk art pug in a harley davidson jacket
Taco the Pug by Megh Raj

Taco looks as chic as ever in his Harley Davidson jacket.  Again, not quite complete.

Folk art Patterdale/Staffie mix
Tiny the Patterdale Staffie by Sagar

Tiny is here as a very early work in progress by Sagar Bitsa.   He is still adding layers to the ones you have seen from him earlier.

Folk art Black Labrador
Cupcake the Black Lab by Sagar

Cupcake is pretty in pink and gold in this early start to her portrait by Sagar.

Folk art Norwich Terrier
Tia the Norwich Terrier as a work in progress by Sagar

Sagar has said that there is much detail work still to be done on Tia the Norwich Terrier.   I should be seeing finals in a couple of days.

Folk Art French Bulldog
Stella the French Bulldog in an early version

Finally today we have Stella a little further along.

Goat on the streets of Kathmandu
A goat enjoys eating posters on the streets of Kathmandu

The goats here are helping to clean up the poster blight that is Kathmandu!   The political posters are to be taken down as a matter of law, but many remain.   Perhaps this might be a solution.  This goat happens to be eating a religious poster that has been promoting Christianity all over town.

Orders are now closed for this trip.  

Let's keep these artists painting.

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!
