Mark Barone and Marina Dervan have thus far spent three and a half years and their retirement savings to try to paint portraits of 5,500 dogs that have been killed in shelters. They are now at 4,900. You cannot appreciate his work until you watch this pbs short documentarty that chronicles the process.The oil paintings are beautiful and each one is created by hand. If you stacked the pictures one on top of the other, they would extend to two football fields in length.
Their vision is to have a permanent exhibit to show humanity that 5,500 dogs are killed everyday, and it is time to take action. You can help them by going to their website and donating, and also spreading the word about their project. http://anactofdog.org/
