Yes! Carson Fox, associate professor of art and art history, comments on the phenomenon in "Newsday."
A dog who can paint? According to a recent story in Newsday (“Dagger, the Canine Painter, Creates his Own Kind of Art,” March 18, 2016), there is one on Long Island—Dagger II, a black Lab-golden retriever mix.
Dagger’s owner, Yvonne Dagger, a fine artist with a specialization in pet portraiture, discovered his gift. Videos released by Newsday depict Dagger at work.
Dagger’s work “brings to mind the styles of abstract expressionists Willem de Kooning and Joan Mitchell,” Fox said.
