Two of the original paintings from the 'Dogs Playing Poker' series were recently sold for $590,000.

It is interesting that the artist is also creditd with creating those life-sized photo opportunity cutouts which you poke your head through.

HA!

I went to an exhibition a few years back that was titled "Great Dog Paintings in History" or something like that. I turned a corner and there it was (2 actually) behind a velvet rope with the little silvery engraved plaque with all the info looking all legitimate like. It was the featured attraction. I didn't know weather to laugh out loud... or stare in hushed awe.
