A truly talented Artist

Hi everyone, Carolyn here.  The boys are giving me a chance to blog today because I got something very special in the mail yesterday.  The boys bought me an early Christmas present, a piece of original artwork. Now my brother-in-law has done some sketches and prints and paintings, but quite so unique as this.

It comes from a new artist, Quint Cole.  Now for those of you who don't know Quint, he is one of the gang of rescued kitties at Colehaus Cats.  He is one of the newer members of the family and it wasn't to long before it was discovered that Quint has a very special talent.  You can read the story from the beginning, to his process, to his finished works , to his gallery opening!  He is one special little guy with a loving and supportive family willing to help his talents bloom.

I was so happy when my package came!





And there it was... a Quint original! From his stunning "Winter, Series 1, 2012" collection. I shivered. The way he caught the swirling snow, the icy beauty of a hoary frosted morning... well I just felt like I needed mittens and a scarf just to stay warm!




This beautiful work went with me to my office.  I have a special corner of my desk where the beautiful things are... a vase of bamboo, a picture of my husband, some beautiful healing stones and now, close to a bunch of dried lavender flowers from my summer garden, a very special piece of art.  It makes me smile every time I look at it, it's perfect there.






If you need a special gift for someone, stop by Quint's Art Shop, where his work is available.  I understand that some of the proceeds will help kitties in need, and hopefully to buy some more canvases for future moments of inspiration.  I told Quint that I would love to be a patron, should he be moved to create again.  After all, art always looks nice in a grouping.  And it gives Dexter a chance to visit the Colehaus ladies. ( I think he's sweet on them!)

Please make sure to go take a look. Santa's coming soon!

  10. Thank you, boys and Carolyn, for writing about our little brother Quint and sharing his story and art! We are thrilled that you enjoy his work, and we think where you have it hanging looks beautiful. You know, most of us are here at the desk when our Mom is blogwalking and when your picture of his canvas came up on the screen, Quint put both of his paws on it. Mom says that's a sign he's ready to paint again and that maybe, a spring series can't be too far away! Thank you again and happy holidays! Love, Tessa, Miss Newton, Olivia, Pia and Quint (and Seth and Maxx who were napping elsewhere).
