New Finals from Dilip: And The First Danger Dragon!

Dilip has finished all his finals for this trip and I am happy to present them to you.


I got my first order for a Bearded Dragon this trip and Dilip was thrilled with this photo of Rex.   He really smiled when he saw the photo.   It was fun for him and he dug in with gusto.   The Nepali lettering translates as King Danger Dragon.


Dalev is a handsome Canaan Dog and Dilip brought out his glow.   I like how the photo gave Dalev a halo.   Canaan's are an ancient breed, used as guard dogs and herders for ancient Israelites.

Sketch is a pretty Ginger Cat, with a lovely coat.   Sketch's Dog-Ma did not want lettering.

Imagine how happy I am when I come to Dilip's studio and find such a great tableau of art.   Imagine what the Nepali by-passers thought of that Bearded Dragon!


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 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.   I am here in November, 2018, to order more Danger Dogs and Cats.

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!


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 or find out more at

Let's keep these artists painting.

American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.
