Marijuana Bust Big Break for Unknown Artist LOS ANGELES (UPI) Rob- ert Rossi, a struggling artist, got a big break from an unlikely source an arrest for mari- juana possession. Rossi, 35, had no money to pay the fine imposed by Judge Carlos Velarde, so he of- fered one of his canvases, "Hol- lywood as payment. Rossi was lucky enough to have been brought before a judge who is an art collector. The judge said that in his opinion, the painting was very good and obviously worth more than the amount of the fine, and he would check with the county purchasing agent to see if it could be accepted as payment. Pictures of Kossi and the painting appeared in newspa- pers and on television, and the publicity has given- sales of his works a boost. "Hollywood Cowboys" purchased by a real estat Droker for enough to pa the fine and Rossi's back rent. "I've sold paintings for nex to nothing just to li said.
