Live from Kathmandu: Finals from Dilip, Megh Raj and Sanjib

Dilip has added the lettering to Sanjib Rana's artwork and has a few new finals on his own.

Wolfie hand painted on metal by Dilip Niroj

 

Wolfie's nickname is "Werewolf" and he often hears the phrase "Werewolf?  Where Wolf?" from the movie Young Frankenstein.

I think he is simply adorable in Dilip's portrait.

 Wolfie's portrait  by Megh Raj gives him a bright red background that brings out his shining eyes.   The photo has a glare across the top that is not there in person.

 Livy' the Pointer's portrait is a little out of focus.   My lighting disappeared.   This one is nice in person, however.

You can fully customize what you would like it to say, coloring in the background, style of painting (folk art or realistic) and, of course, all pets are welcome.   I have had everything from desert turtles to conyers to ferrets ordered.    Each commission gets a choice of 3 portraits by different artists.

I am currently in Nepal  near the end of my trip and orders are closed.  However, I will be returning to Nepal in February to order more, so do not hesitate to be among the first orders for 2018.

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!

Now is the time to order:   Be ahead of the Pack!   

I am in Kathmandu right now and taking orders until the November 25, 2017 cut off date.  I will be back in plenty of time to mail your holiday orders.

How to order your custom pet portrait from NepalDog.com

  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:   ampage1@gmail.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 $20 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!
