It was sad to take down the Wall of Dogs at the Ghetto Gloss Gallery, but it had to be done - they have a new show opening on Saturday. Here is what you can find still up on the walls, on their rental gallery, or on their on-line sales room...
This first painting is by Ramesh at Om Art. The painting is from an editorial photo of Bruce Weber's dog with a lot of jewelry. However, as Ramesh painted it, it looks a bit like the dog has hydrophobia to me. The wild eyes and the primitive teeth have always been a favorite of mine, and I was happy that Fiora and the GhettoGloss team liked it as well.
This portrait is painted from a newspaper clipping of rescue dogs and is by Yuba Raj Adhikari.
The Nepali script reads: 'Beware of Dog'.
Also by Yuba Raj, from the very same pitiful newspaper, this Danger Dog looks like he has been ironed. I call him the Flatiron Dog.
Here is the lovely Boston Terrier Veera with a cynical look captured by Sabala.
G.G. the Black Standard Poodle by Sabala glows.
Also by Sabala is Floy the Pitbull looking serious.
Kayla the White Shepherd lives in Canada. Here is her portrait by Sabala.
Louis is a Spiritual Poodle - my first - by Sabala.
This little chihuahua is by Sagar, in his signature style of round motif with vibrant colors and his Japanese chop.
By Hari Prasad is this portrait of Kitty the young Dachshund.
This little Jack Russell with a tie is by Shahi of Pokhara.
Amar Shrestha of Boudha painted Mollie the Jack Russell as an Enlightened Dog.
An adorable Pomeranian by Nara of Asha Arts. Signed on the reverse. This client asked not to have Nepali script included in their commission. Beware of Dogs indeed!
Moose the Rottweiler by Nara of Asha Art. The intense gaze and delicate paws make for a great painting.
This little Scottie Dog wrapped in a blanket is signed Amar = mini painter.
These 15 Danger Dogs are available at the GhettoGloss Gallery on 6109 Melrose (at Seward) 90038.
It is always interesting to see which Dogs someone will pick to display in their shop. Fiora has quirky taste. She got the Dogs from the very first time she saw them. Thanks to her brother Jeff for recognizing that she would enjoy the Fair Trade Art project.
It is hard to believe that this exhibit is the fifth exhibit this year. From Hollywood to Tehachapi to Venice to San Luis Obispo and back to Hollywood, this has been the 'Year of the Dog' as far as I'm concerned. Thanks to everyone who has supported the Danger Dogs from their inception 2 and a half years ago.
I will be in Kathmandu next week at this time. If you enjoy following this blog on occasion, it will get more interesting next week. For those of you who hang on during the lean (California) times, I appreciate it. I'll be back with the new orders in early December in time to ship Christmas orders.
I do love comments and questions, so please contact me at email@example.com.
Get those orders in if you have them.
All pieces are approximately 1 foot square, synthetic enamel on metal. Each commission receives a choice of at least 3 portraits of their pets by 3 different Nepali artists. You choose what you'd like your sign to say, and pay only after you decide you like one. Satisfaction guaranteed.
