Danger Dogs in Manhattan!

Finally New York Danger Dog lovers have a place to see the Dogs in Manhattan.   

Prudence Designs at 347 W. 36th St (between 8th and 9th) is proud to present the Danger Dogs!   

Call to confirm the address:   (212) 691-1356

The proprietor, Carlson Handy, saw the Dogs at the Product-N-Press show in Chelsea on Tuesday and liked them right away.   Sorry about the bad photo.   Maybe Carlson will send me a better one.    One that includes Danger Dogs.

Here's a peek of the Danger Dogs you will get to see in person by stopping by:

Niki, a Pomeranian from Brooklyn will get to admire her portrait.   Above by ShaShi.   The script is in Tibetan.

FloJo, an Italian Greyhound, got a Nepali Extreme Home Makeover.   The couch that FloJo is lounging on is originially beige.   Shree likes a little more color in his furnishings.

 Millie Chocolate lab by Megh Raj
Millie, the Enlightened Chocolate Lab, by Megh Raj.   Megh Raj paints a very lifelike portrait.

Aussie the Labradoodle's portrait includes Govinda's trademark reflective lettering.

No Danger Dog exhibit is complete without a Boxer.   My friend Siggy as painted by Sabala.

This Coton de Tulear signed by Surya also looks like a sheepdog.    I believe this one was painted by Vinosh.

 Gustavo Chihuahua Sabala
Gustavo by Sabala.   The Nepali script translates as 'Dharma Dog'.

It wouldn't be Halloween without a black cat.    Zia by Chandra Chaudhury.

Luke the Weimaraner by Hari Timsina.

This fluffy sheepdog is by Amar Shrestha of Boudha.

Also by Amar is his portrait of a bulldog that I photographed at a garage sale here in Los Angeles.  

This Zen Kitty is a tomcat named Lula.   Not named by Johnny Cash, this Tonkinese cat's balls dropped 7 weeks late!   And he was already named.   No wonder he has his dukes up in this painting.

 Desi Havanese by Megh Raj
Desi the Havanese puppy is by Megh Raj.

Shree painted Layla the Black Labrador against a golden backdrop and added a dramatic border.

Grace by Sagar, post apocalypse.   Sagar means ocean in Nepali and his Japanese chop signature means ocean in Japanese.

Annie and Pitzel the Pomeranian and the Papillion by Jit Gurung of Pokhara.

These Danger Dogs are taking over Manhattan.   Hopefully soon they will come to your neighborhood.   I'm trying!

Please order your Danger Pets soon, as I am leaving for Nepal in less than 2 weeks.   Each Danger Dog commission generates work for 3 Nepali artists and 3 signboards on metal for you to choose from.   Extras will end up on Museum Shop walls, art exhibits, or in cool stores like Prudence Design.   

By the way, Prudence Designs was named for Carlson's dachshund Prudence.    Find out more about Prudence Designs at PrudenceDesigns.net.

More tomorrow.

Duke the Weimaraner

You could not ask for a more elegant portrait of a Weimaraner not photographed by William Wegman.  Today I am featuring Duke and a couple of other Weimaraners portraits from Nepal:


This portrait from Hari Timsina I miss a lot.. look at that eye on the left of the painting...  be ware of Dog dribbling down his ear...  This is the psychedelic Duke.


This is the portrait that Duke's owner chose.   Very elegant and straightforward with muted colors befitting his breed, this is 'pented' by Amar Shrestha of Pashupati Art.  This is the real Duke.


A quite different take on Duke from Baijanath.  More of a 'gumshoe Duke'.  This one is available at ampage1@gmail.com.


A dramatic and long-necked Duke by Vinosh and signed by Birju.   A wild and crazy Duke.


Also available is Duke the Weimaraner again painted by Hari Timsina.   The 'meek Duke'.  This was painted in July, 2009.  


This is Jasper on a 'magic carpet ride' as painted by Shree with his typical elysian fields as a backdrop. A spacey Jasper.   Available.


This intent Weimaraner is not looking stage right, but is staring up at a squirrel.   I took the orignal photo at a garage sale north of Montana here in Santa Monica.  Maybe I should post the photo on its side so that the Weimaraner is looking up as in real life.   This painting was signed Birju, but was painted by an artist from India named Babu.   A  'Weimaraner of focus'.   Available.


No Weimaraners here, but I couldn't resist.   These stairs are prime Danger Dog display space.   They add spice to any room.  Keep burglars away too!  

There are a few more 'secret Weimaraners' hanging around the house, too.   Please inquire for the full spectrum of what's available.

Comments, questions, remarks... I love them all.   Either below in the space provided or email me at ampage1@gmail.com.   I'll be glad to hear from you.

I have published two articles about travel in Nepal.   Here is the link:  http://www.ecs.com.np/place.htm#   The second is a side bar to the cover article - scroll down from here:   http://www.ecs.com.np/article_1_1.html   All of the photos that accompany my article are mine, as well as some that are included in the cover story about Lo Manthang.  I haven't seen the pdf of the actual article yet, to see what is really in the (quite lovely and glossy) magazine.   ECS has a long life as many 'traveller's' restaurants in Nepal have stacks of ECS going back years for perusal.

Can't complain about the writers!

More tomorrow.
