This morning while getting ready to go to my improvised studio to start a new painting, I was watching Today Show on MSNBC. One of the show’s guests was a service dog named Sam who paints. His owner sells his paintings for $1,500-$2,000 each. Actually she dips a brush in paint for Sam, the pooch holds a brush in his mouth, Sam makes few strokes on canvas and that’s it. She also trains other dogs to paint. While admiring the owner’s idea to discover creative side of her dog to help her make living in tough economy, I was wondering who would pay nearly $2,000 for Sam’s brush strokes done in few minutes. No offense Sam, although I love dogs, there is no way I would pay $2K for your strokes.
