My favorite part of the Danger Dogs from Nepal project is seeing the finals and being surprised at how the artists have painted the portraits, the backgrounds chosen, the framing of the images and the font they add. If there are no special requests, it is fun to see what they envision.
Frank the Russian Blue Cat looks striking against a sunset background, as painted by Megh Raj.
Another portrait of the beautiful Whitney is by Megh Raj who gives her an orange bubble background, setting off her dramatic black fur.
Henry and Clyde are in the field. This painting was made from 2 separate photos of the pair of Pit Bull buddies.
Sagar chose to paint Stanley in paradise.
Mog the Brindle by Megh Raj is the first of 3. Megh Raj did a great job with his pretty fur.
Time is running out to order for this trip. I will be accepting orders until April 20, 2018. Otherwise you will need to wait for the fall 2018 trip.
I am back in Nepal ordering Beware of Dog (and Cat) portraits, returning in early May, 2018 with your paintings.
How to order your custom pet portrait from NepalDog.com
- 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 $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!
