Acrylic on paper, 21 x 17 inches
So I did what any Internet hog does; googled for more artistically inclined pooches!
Ziggy a Pekingese dog has been painting since 2007, created over 25 masterpieces, has her own website! Watch Ziggy create a masterpiece in this news segment by SBS Australia News
“The dogs here at SSD are an extremely talented bunch. Not only can they do complex Service Dog tasks but they've now become the world famous Doggie Da Vincis, featured in newspapers, magazines, television, and even National Geographic TV's "Dog Genius" program that will be airing in late 2007!”
The final animal I found that produces ummmm art of a sort is Tucker and his website PEE-ces of Art by Tucker . This art is produced by Tucker’s care taker photographing the detailed streams of his urine on the ground. Sometimes Tucker’s artwork is enhanced with decorative items such as leaves. I found this form of art odd to say the least!! Then I read Tucker’s bio “Portrait of the Artist as an Old Dog” (if you only click one link in this post, make it this one - Tucker's story is worth reading!) and it all became clearer.
Bela Dubby Art Gallery. A portion of the proceeds of all sales to benefit two exceptional non-profit organizations: The Sanctuary for Senior Dogs and The Cleveland Animal Protective League.
My last bit of odd animal artist find is an elephant...
