Artist Danette Malerich loves dogs!
For dogs, the eyes are truly the window to their soul. That is the central focus on all dog portraits that Artist Danette Malerich creates.
"If you don't get the eyes, you don't have a portrait" says Ms. Malerich.
That is why she concentrates so thoroughly
on every aspect of the details on each dog portrait.
"The details lead to the eyes and the eyes enhance the details. It all works together.
This includes: color, light and shadow.
Once all of these elements are there, the spirit of the dog comes shining through."
My mission is to bring awareness of the plight of the throw away dog. To help with this, I donate $20.00 from each finished portrait to a local area Dog Rescue organization.
On the right are some of the organizations.
