cat painters

in response to my previous "DiY - tropicana" post - anyone can paint!
if my cat can do it, you can do it.  painting is a technical skill that simply takes practice.
it's creativity that hopefully tips from my blog can help you with.
where there's a will, there's a way~ :)


 
a sweet little inspirational cat book :)
I am a bit obsessed with cats.
coco and bucky are coming to my city apt in just a few weeks!
should I try this on them? perhaps not, I like my apartment clean..

cats paint you say? it's not new. it dates as far back to egyptian times
(also check out elephant paintings.. pretty remarkable)

Why Cats Paint presents a cogently argued theory based on recent evidence which clearly supports the view that some cats' marks are aesthetically motivated and should be regarded as genuine works on non-primate art."

  3. Regardless, I think the pictures are hilarious. They need to sell the pics as posters.
