Olive the Pug is on the red carpet in her portrait by Megh Raj Thapa. I love the bright colors in this painting. It was supposed to say Olive the Pug, but Megh Raj thought that I had misspelled it and changed the word to love. Works for me!
Huxley the Collie Labrador mix by Megh Raj Thapa. His Dog-ma requested a circular motif.
Huxley the Cattle Dog and Collie mix would feel at home in San Francisco with his headdress. I especially like the tongue and eyes on this one. This is hand painted by the artist Sagar Bitsa.
Mato the German Shepherd and his beautiful eyes as hand painted by Megh Raj.
Last, but never least, the handsome Zeke. Megh Raj captures Zeke's direct stare.
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 holiday gifts. I am in Nepal right now and ready to give your pet's photo to 3 different artists.
You choose the style, the color, what you would like the sign to say...
I am accepting order until Thanksgiving, November 28, 2019
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!
Let's keep these artists painting.
American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.
