Live from Kathmandu: Finals from Megh Raj Thapa
April 24, 2022
Megh Raj Thapa is able to paint photo realistic images. It is always a pleasure to work with him.
LukYi is a black pup with a direct gaze and beautiful glossy fur. Megh Raj did it justice.
Breakfast loves that yellow ball as much as the green one. This dog has a nice smile and pretty white paws.
Molly's fur blends well with the background Megh Raj chose. And that pretty pink tongue.
Another nice portrait of 'Alivn' the Yorkie.
Matilda again pleases with that big grin Megh Raj chose a black background to bring out her colors.
Mr. Peanut's portrait by Megh Raj brings out a softer side of this pretty black cat.
Ginger is nicely captured and looks good against her pink background.
Sam the Yorkie looks young and happy in this one. Megh Raj likes subtle colored backgrounds, allowing the pet to shine.
This is the third and final portrait of Mozzarella the Papillion mix. Megh Raj got the details of his ears, making them look like string cheese!
Sumio the Tuxedo Cat has great whiskers in this portrait by Megh Raj.
Kahn the Black Chow is so dramatic and magnificent. He definitely fills the frame with his leonine fur.
Moxie, again with the pink background, inspired by his blanket! The artists all had fun with his hair
Zora, an enlightened black pup. She has a nice smile in this one.
Schwazie has beautiful eyes and a very direct look.
Beezus the White Shepherd is a Denger Dog in this one. Megh Raj captured his softer side.
Bodhi by Megh Raj has a different look than the two previous incarnations. It will be good to see them all at once.
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 [email protected] or find out more at www.NepalDog.com.
Let's keep these artists painting. American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.
