Sam the dog...

Now, there's a new story that's grabbed the attention of more than one news report here in the UK, it's about a painting dog.

"Sam is a regular renaissance dog and his abstract paintings are all the rage with the hip New York galleries," says Mary Stadelbacher, Sam's owner.
"He loves his painting and would happily carry on for hours if I left him to it.
"He loves to work in a variety of colours and layers his paintings with darker shades first and then moves on to lighter ones later." Quote from the Telegraph... here

His paintings sell for more than £1000.

Now, the fact that the woman involved is totally deluded is only confirmed by the following statement...
"Using his specialised training as a house-help dog, combined with my amateur art background, Sam is a fully trained artist," explains Mary.
....and, worse.... "He is quite a unique abstract artist."

OK, so I am not even gonna discuss this, after all I have earthworms in my garden who could do a good imitation Pollock. My big question is, however, how did he get an SL account, I'm sure I've seen his work in a few galleries here...
...and who taught him to use Anim Smooth??
