Storyline

Peter is out driving with one of Chris' paintings in his car when a man stops him and offers to buy the painting. The man turns out to be a famous art critic from New York, who insists that Chris come with him to develop his talent. While everyone is thrilled at first, Chris starts to feel some misgivings over all that has changed in his life, and uses his art to explore what's really important to him.

The One Where Chris Becomes A Famous Artist...
24 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really love this episode. It's so funny and I love the way Chris changes, but then eventually changes back.

In this episode, Chris gives Peter a painting he did especially for him, so Peter hangs it in his car window. A man stops him and says he loves the artwork and wants to meet with Chris. This ends up making Chris a famous artist in New York City, but his manager wants him to change, where Chris doesn't want to make that sacrifice. He uses his art to explore his feelings, but the art community do not care for it.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
