Today is already Thanksgiving here, though due to logistics, the Kathmandu community celebrates it two days later on Saturday. I would like to give thanks to the latest and greatest Danger Dogs today.
Charlie is looking very happy in this final by Indra Lama.
Dylan looks stunning in blue while he awaits his final lettering in Nepalese.
Hermione (foreground) is a Bichon Frisee and her pal Neville is a furry mixture. They look very cute in this work in progress.
I almost like this one as is with the false start by Megh Raj. He seems to be a messy painter around the periphery of his figures, but a master at detail inside the figure itself. Better than the other way around.
This cute pair was enjoying the sunshine on a friend's roof. Dolma the Lhasa Apso was sniffing around another corner. Ap (as in Apso) means to bark in Tibetan. This trio lives up to their name.
At this time, I can no longer accept orders for this trip. Please send me photos for spring/summer trip in 2014.
I could make an exception for rush cases, but cannot guarantee 3 portraits.
Orders no longer being accepted for the November 2013 trip. I will be back in early December 2013 in plenty of time to mail holiday 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: email@example.com
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.
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!
