Live from Kathmandu: More finals from Dilip

 Dilip Niroj has completed another painting, and there are more to come.

 

Folk art portrait of a Rhodesian Ridgeback hand painted on metal in Nepal

Ben is a handsome Rhodesian Ridgeback and here he is in all his glory.

 St Roch, patron saint of dogs, with a Foxhound and a Beagle
St Roch with Chester and Cooper by Sagar

This is going to be an interesting painting.   Here Sagar has St Roch, patron saint of dogs, gently cradling Chester and Cooper, a Foxhound and a Beagle, in his arms and at his side.  The angels hovering above add another nice element.

This is a very early version, but you can see its wonderful scope.  I can't wait to see this one in living color!

If you like what you have seen above, it is not too late for you to order your pet's personalized portrait.

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 wcome.   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 in the middle of my trip.   Please order soon.

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!
