Live from Kathmandu: Finals from Dilip Niroj!
April 22, 2022
Mr. Peanut, a Domestic Short Hair Cat, looks good against this yellow background, bringing out his glossy hair and striking eyes.
Breakfast, a black dog with a green ball, has a big smile in his portrait by Dilip.
Molly the Shaggy dog, looks at home in her first portrait by Dilip.
Marsh Man and his beloved ball. He wants you to throw it!
Beezus looks happy in his field of green, amidst flowers.
Lois, the Black Pug, also loves her ball on the beach. A very happy pup!
Sam the Yorkie looks good against his green background.
Sumio, the Tuxedo Cat, looks pretty in pink. Another of Dilip's peculiarities is when you instruct him to write Sumio in English and Nepali, you sometimes get 'Sumio in English'...
Bernie, a tripod Pit Bull, looks comfy on his plaid blanket.
Schwazie the Dachshund and Beagle mix is sitting on a swirl of color.
Last, but never least, is the adorable Moxie. Well named, Moxie has that terrier tip of her head, so well captured here.
Please excuse the glare of the photography!
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. But I hope to return in fall 2022.
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.
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!
Send your photo to email@example.com or find out more at www.NepalDog.com.
Let's keep these artists painting. American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.
