Quint, the painter, sits by the glass door watching for spring inspiration to appear.
Ah, there it is!
Beginning work. We’ve moved Quint from his large studio box to the master bath counter to open up the space (for photography) and because he (generally) doesn’t shake the paint off his paw. Of course, as soon as we mentioned this, he gave the mirror one mighty splash of lavender paint.
Dabbing and dragging pale blue color plus bonus close inspection!
Checking out his handiwork on the mirror and then, showing his annoyance with the camera presence. Quint really dislikes photography during his work. This is just odd because all the other times, he’s a camera ham! Gee, it’s not like we’re going to sell the painting photos or write a book or anything. Probably not anyway.
He signals his finish with a swipe of paint on the countertop. A quick wash up and a pat dry later, Quint picks up Mr. Mousie (mousie #114 you should know) and is off to be just his normal self – playing, napping and chasing a sister or two.
We worked through six 6×6 inch canvases, three on a pale green background and three on light pink background. He seemed to favor lavender, pink and blue this time around though a bit of yellow made appearances here and there (the colors are all mixed within the same shallow bowl – see photos). Tomorrow, we plan to dabble in spring watercolors on artist’s paper. Unless Mr. Mousie has other plans. Mr. Mousie just might need a full day of whapping, you know.
