Pit Bull folk art portrait hand painted on metal in Nepal
Bernie the 3-legged Pit Bull by Megh Raj

Bernie shines again in this portrait by Megh Raj.

By the way, the chalk marks are just how Megh Raj aligns his lettering.  I leave them on so that people can see the method  They are easily wiped off.

Please stay tuned for more finals to come! If you would like to have your dog (cat, horse, chicken, bunny, bearded dragon, etc.) immortalized on metal here in Nepal, it is now too late.   

I will return in the autumn of 2022, leaving plenty of time to deliver holiday gifts.

You choose the style, the color, what you would like the sign to say... You can also check out NepalDog.com, as I have over 72 breeds of dog (and counting) and many cats.

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 ampage1@gmail.com or find out more at www.NepalDog.com.

Let's keep these artists painting. American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.

Please check out the Nepal Dog YouTube Channel:   https://www.youtube.com/user/NepalDog You will be happy you did!
