An amateur artist is expected to be the highlight of a charity art exhibit this week in Louisville, Ky. While his work is expected to fetch a couple hundred dollars, buyers may be more impressed with his artistic temperament.

The 6-year-old, who just picked up a brush last year, will be featured in an auction gallery alongside nationally renowned artists.

The "Paw"-casso behind the canvas, is a poodle named Polo.

"He took on pretty fast," Ann Sheltz says of her painting poodle.

Since poodles are retrievers, she knew if Polo learned key commands, he could pick up her talent.
