I want to paint your cat's portrait! 

Hello, my name is Mr Let's Paint (John Kilduff) and I have a new painting series that I want to start and your cat can play an important role in it!

In my last Kickstarter (In My Dreams Art Residency), I painted Moth's cat as one of the rewards. His cat is an orange cat and it sort of looks like my orange cat (see pictures below). I posted the picture on Facebook and people thought the painting was a portrait of my orange cat and I had to say no...it's Moth's orange cat. And than I thought...I know at least 5 people that have orange cats..why not make a large painting with all the orange cats that I know?...how about a large painting of all the black cats that I know and all the cow cats that I know, etc, etc. 

This is where you come in... with your support and cat, I can make these large paintings. The paintings will be 4 feet by 5 feet or larger. I plan to make three large paintings for starters....one of only orange cats, one of black cats, and one of cow cats. Based on the response from you...I may add or change the groupings...maybe a mixed group too? 

For you reward...I will be painting 100- 8" x 10" oil portraits of your cats. I than will include your cat in my larger paintings! All cats will be put in the larger paintings! ...(no matter what they look like)

Now, if you would like a painting of your dog, your loved one, pet fish, etc....I can also paint that for you. Maybe if I get enough requests for dog portraits...I might do a large painting of dogs too!

Thanks so much for your interest and support!

Risks and challenges

The only challenge I see...is not making the goal of painting 100 cat portraits. If I can make the goal...I will be financially set for a few months and as such, I can buy time if you will to devote attention to this painting series.
