Dog paints pictures

A tiny Pekingese dog is sending the art world barking mad after his owner discovered his hidden talent for producing abstract works of art.

Little Ziggy is making a roaring trade from his work which fetch up to £170 a painting.

Owner Elizabeth Monacelli said he three-year-old pet began painting about three years ago after she encouraged him to pick up a paintbrush.

And unlike many struggling artists, Ziggy is doing a roaring trade with his works in big demand across his home town of Fallbrook, California.

Ms Monacelli, a violin instructor, attaches a paintbrush to the end of a paper roller, which Ziggy either bites into or attaches to his snout to paint on canvas.

But she said Ziggy is a temperamental artist who’s prone to bouts of ennui and existential doubts.

‘He enjoys painting but has to be in the right frame of mind for it,’ Ms Monacelli said.
