Quint’s Favorite Kind of Fireworks.

Well, that loud, booming day is upon us once again and Quint doesn’t understand why so much noise is necessary. No sir, he doesn’t like it and we’re not too fond of it either.

Quint says: Can’t you tell the loud humans that I’d like to go out for a walk to see the bright flowers?

Flowers are soooooo much better than scary booming sounds, like these petunias here.

Wait! I have to check something out. Nope, no loud noises in there. Flowers are so much more polite than things going BOOM!

Good whiffies and good inspiration for painting! Time to get to work before all that racket begins in earnest!

He’s back to painting, this time using bold paw strokes and hot, summer colors. Go take a peek at his Burst of Summer 2014 paintings. This is a limited run of only six. He’s pretty proud of them.

As for this day of scary, booming sounds, sorry, sweetie. We don’t understand it either. Our town keeps promising no more fireworks but that decision seems to get pushed back farther and farther in favor of sales and profit. So, in a few hours, we’ll join the kitties under our bed where we’ll make a cool fort and reread out loud the Itty Bitty Kitty Committee book by flashlight.

  1. We don’t loud boomers either but we do love our brofur Boomer. 🙂 Thankfully there won’t be any fireworks where we are today so that’s good!

    Your petunias are beautiful as are your loud lilies. Mommy love lilies but has to contend with admiring them from far since they are dangerous for us.

    Happy 4th of July!

  2. Yeah, a time to be UTB for sure. Our Mom doesn’t like the boomies either.

  3. We agree with you, Quint…flowers are better than fire-boomers. Happy 4th of July!

  4. We hope the fireworks won’t spoil your artistry Quint.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. I’m so glad to see Quint is painting again! They are lovely!

    Those paintings are beautiful! Nice work. Hope you guys have a Happy 4th of July and that the fireworks are too loud!

  7. I love your paintings- they are fantastic, I hope your mom frames them.

  8. Oh sweetheart, your parents will try to shield you kitties from the loud boomers. xox

  9. It’s always so exciting to see that Quint is painting. We love seeing his work!

    We hope you have a safe and quiet Indepdendence Day!

  10. I’m pretty sure my humans will be back before it gets dark – if they go out at all! My human is too worried about people setting off fireworks in our hilly, fire-prone neighborhood!

  11. I don’t like the boomies either Quint. I hide under the duvet on the bed.
    Those flowers are much better than nasty noises.

  12. Oh Quint, thank you for the tour, so lovely and we adore your new paintings! (Thank you!) We hope that the fireworks won’t be too bad for all of you and we wish you a wonderful 4th of July!

  13. We think those flowers are prettier than any old boomie fireworks. Mom said if the neighbors get noisy (not to likely out here in the boonies) she’ll read to us too, we thinks that it is a great idea!

  14. Stay comfy, we like your summer paintings.

  15. Happy Independence Day to our furiends. We hope you have a safe holiday and don’t have too many of those noise crackers.

  16. Gorgeous flowers for you to paint, Quint. Happy Independence Day and Happy 4th to the peeps!

  17. Quint, we think you paintings are just the right amount of “POP” for us!

    Happy Purrthday America!

    Now, time to hide from the fireworks…

  18. We agree with you, Quint! We are heading over to see your latest work.

  19. Jenna stayed on my pillow last night until the boomies subsided. We’re anxious to see your summer paintings 🙂

  20. We agree, Quint. Flowers are WAY better than stupid fireworks. Happy Fourth of July weekend, dear friends. 🙂

  21. Quint suas petúnias são lindas, também adorei as cores vibrantes, elas foram uma grande inspiração para o sua linda pintura.

  22. Thankfully the humans all stayed with us. The noises were pretty muted anyway – and Maxie can’t hear so he could care less! We agree with you though – boomies should be banned!

  23. I have missed visiting you guys. I am back. Quint – you rock the flowers man!!
