Mom wants to say more about what I like to do. I think she over-explains everything. *sigh* But I’ll let her talk.

Mom says: “What a fun project! At least, we had fun and we really do think Quint had fun too. We learned Quint is right pawed and prefers seasonal colors – bright Caribbean blues and greens for summer, peachs and grays in fall, soft silvery blues for winter. If we hadn’t already seen him painting with toothpaste and cat litter, we’d think his touching and batting the canvas was a little creepy. He’s so intense when he works and lets us know when he’s done by looking for a way out of his ‘studio.’

And of course afterward, he gets lots of kisses and a soft paw wash and treats and then, a nap in a sun puddle like all kitties deserve.

The hard part, it turns out, is photographing him when he’s busy. For someone who’s fairly photogenic the rest of the time, even mugging for the camera it seems, he strongly dislikes us recording him at work. We’ll keep trying to get better pictures.”

Or so they think…MOL!

“So, Quint, do you want to keep painting?”

If people like my work and want me to, absolutely! Can I? Can I? Please? Plu-eeeeaaasse?

“Would you mind parting with your work? If we were able to sell them and maybe donate one or two to good causes?”

If humans like them, and I can keep painting, seems to me we all win. Gotta pay for treats and toys somehow…oh, and more paint and square things too, I guess.

There you have it. Quint speaks. We’ll come up with a marketing plan after Halloween. If you have any ideas, please let us know! In the meantime, back to the studio. Thank you all for reading and supporting our little artist!

  12. I say he opens his own Etsy shop!

  13. Mowzers, Quint, you’re one talented dudecat! We think an Etsy shop is a FAB idea!!

  14. It’s great to meet you! My goodness but you’re a talented little guy – I think you should demand payment in TUNAS!

  15. Really cool! I don’t think the mommy would trust me with paint. You are lucky!

  16. Those are just pawsome, Quint! We think you can raise a lot of money for worthy causes with them. What a great idea.

    Have you thought about setting up a video camera of some kind to capture Quint in action?

  17. I agree with Cody’s human, Caren – Quint needs his own Esty shop! His paintings are awesome – way prettier than anything my human could come up with. And she took painting lessons a long time ago!

  18. Well! Re you the talented kitty? And cute too!

  19. Quint, Stop it! You’re making the rest of us look bad!

    The Human says, “I’d buy one a them Quint paintings!”

  20. Awesome! Reminds me of that book from awhile back, Why Cats Paint.

    Nice to meet you!

  21. Quint of course you are more secretive with the camera when painting you have a process and want to really feel what the painting wants to be as true artists do. Pawsome job.

  22. Beautiful and ever so talented Quint! We are in SUPER AWE!! We are truly amazed by your wonderful prints – they are BEAUTIFUL!!! Well done you!! Yay! Take care
