This Adorable Dog Doubles As An Art Critic, And It's The Best Thing We've Seen All Day An art genius in the making?
They say that dogs are a man's best friend — but can they be our best critics, too? For artist Julia Powell, that's certainly the case.
In photos and videos uploaded to her popular Instagram account, Powell shows what happens when her 6-year-old dog, a golden retriever named Ella, examines her work. In the photos, Ella sits stoically, staring at the paintings with what appears to be extreme concentration.
"Ella recently noticed my paintings," Powell tells A Plus in an email. "I caught her pausing more than usual when she walked by them. Ella has a discerning eye and an unimpeachable moral center, and I think she realized that my paintings were finally developing into the kind of work that she could take seriously. At long last — my art is worthy of her attention."
