Live from Kathmandu: Works in Progress from Dilip

It is always fun to pick up from Dilip Niroj.  The paintings line the steps leading up to his shop.

The bright signs compete with the hodgepodge of advertisements on Dilip's stoop.

Mabel by Dilip

 Mabel is still awaiting her final lettering, but she is looking very good in Dilip's portrait.

Minnow the Tabby Cat by Dilip

 Minnow, a lovely Tabby Cat, still needs her lettering as well. She looks like a magnificent tiger.

Ancho Toy Poodle
Ancho the Toy Poodle by Dilip

 Ancho, the Toy Poodle has a big hat to fill.  Her name is misspelled Ancno, and we can still fix that, if needed.   The Nepali lettering to the right says Ancho.

Lusso the Italian Greyhound by Dilip

 Lusso, a very elegant Italian Greyhound, is luminous in this portrait.   He will make a fine Danger Dog.

Sojho the Nepali Dog  by Dilip

 Sojho, a Nepali dog, is still awaiting his tikka - a red blessing on the forehead.

 The dashing Leo, a Dalmatian, had a big smile for the camera.  This is still a work in progress.

 Ranger, a Pit Bull mix, really stands out against the red and yellow background. She is a stunner.

A very early work in progress of Opie, a Catahoula and Pit Bull mix. This should be a good one.

An early work in progress of Chairman Meow by Dilip

Again, Chairman Meow in a very early work in progress.  You can see my reflection in photo, but Dilip is doing a fine job with this grey and white beauty. 

More coming very soon!  

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

If you would like to have your dog (cat, horse, chicken, bunny, bearded dragon, etc.) immortalized on metal here in Nepal, you can send me a photo of your pet.   I am now in Kathmandu, Nepal, taking orders.

I will return in early December, 2022, in plenty of time to deliver for holiday gifts.

You choose the style, the color, what you would like the sign to say...

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

1.  Send me a photo of your pet to [email protected]. Find out more at www.NepalDog.com..  

2. Let me know the name of your pet, their breed and what you would like it to say.

I will give the photo 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.
