Two months after "the world's preeminent canine painter," a Jack Russell terrier named Tillamook Cheddar, wrapped up his exhibition at the Hollywood Art and Culture Center, it's only a matter of time till the next paintbrush-wielding mutt comes along: Meet Sam the painting hound mix. He just sold a painting for $1,700!
I think it's fair to guess that the buyer isn't an art collector, per se, but rather an evil SOB determined to break the spirit of every starving artist who can't sell a genuine piece of art to pay the rent.
