Better late than never! Megh Raj took his time, but delivered!
Swami, a happy Labrador Retriever, will never fade from memory in his last final by Megh Raj Thapa. The details on his smile are incredible.
Callie, a German Short Haired Pointer, is ready for her close-up in this final portrait by Megh Raj.
Rex the Bearded Dragon became Eex the Bearded Dragon. I'm sure he will not mind. The artists all absolutely loved getting this photo of Rex to paint.
I have to apologize for the slow loading time at Typepad. They have started a new Photo Editing Suite that is difficult to navigate and will not allow me to downsize the photos so that they are easier to upload. I assume that Typepad is working on this as we speak...
In the next week, I will be publishing either finals or works in progress from the Nepali artists. If you would like to be first to see these paintings,
please follow the Nepal Art Dogs page on Facebook.
Or you can follow the NepalDog.typepad.com feed.
If you would like to have your dog (cat, horse, chicken, bunny, bearded dragon, etc.) immortalized on metal here in Nepal, now is the perfect time to order for next Mother's and Father's Day gifts. I will be back to Nepal in February, 2019, to order more Danger Dogs and Cats (and Dragons!).
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!
HOW TO ORDER
To order, 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 artists 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, be framed or unframed.
While I am in Nepal, your pet will be featured on the Danger Dog Blog, as I stop into the artists' studios and document the works in progress.
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!
Send your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or find out more at www.NepalDog.com.
Let's keep these artists painting.
American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.
