Artistic Dog Sells Paintings For $1700
Sam is not your average dog. The artistic talents of this dog have been recognised across the USA. His art has been sold for up to $1700 and has featured in swanky New York galleries such as Denise Dibro’s studio.
Mary Stadelbacher, rescued Sam from a shelter six years ago. The sheep dog, bloodhound cross, had been transferred between shelters and was not looking at much of a future before Mary rescued him.
After taking him in, Mary trained Sam to paint using a regular brush in a specially designed holder. Sam not only took to the art, he excelled. If allowed he will paint for hours.
Sam’s technique is pretty sound too, starting with darker colours and layering on lighter colours.
Mary describes Sam as “quite a unique abstract artist.”
