New Quint Art and an Interview!

Quint’s been hard at work this week creating new paintings for his art shop. And not a moment too soon! With a sell-out of his summer stock last weekend and a fun interview released just today on the Responsible Pet Ownership Blog, he’s been one busy boy! We hope you like his interview.

Here’s something else he’s been doing:

Every so often, often very late at night, we hear one of the kitties tugging at the window blinds so they can look out the window. Their view, at that time of night, is of the tops of dark fir trees and of the heavens and stars. We always figured it was Tessa weaseling her way onto the window sill, but nope. It was Quint.

An idea was born.

Our local craft store carries little 4×4 inch black canvases and small, simple easels for each canvas to sit on. Mom thought those would be great for…. something. She didn’t know what. Quint watching the stars became that something.

So Mom got out her big illustrated art book and mixed up starry paint and let Quint do his thing.

After a few more minutes dabbing paint, he notices something isn’t quite the same as Mr. Van Gogh’s painting.

And then, he gets it! He needs a moon!

That’s what’s missing. A paw wash and dry, a few more dabs of paint and the result…

You can find this masters-inspired, limited edition canvas run, which comes with an unpublished photo of Quint at work and a postcard at his art shop. Acrylic watercolor versions of the same painting on heavy art paper, without photo nor in limited edition, are available too along with his pre-fall ‘Touch of Autumn’ paintings. Don’t forget to check out Quint’s interview and then, go have a look at his new creations!

  1. OMC! Mom was so lucky that she got on to check our squee-mail (she’s been on vacation with her brother and sister in-law most of the week.) She ran right out to Quint’s store (which convieniently is open at 5:10 am PST) and got right to the door as it opened!

    Can’t wait!

  2. We love Quint’s version of Starry Night better than the original! This time the mom HAS to get us one of Quint’s paintings.

  3. Me LOVE your version better , Quint !

    I got my paws on mom´s creditcard and ordered one of your paintings 🙂

  4. OMC OMC OMC! We saw this and even though we just got another canvas recently, we demanded that the head peep buy this for us. Quint, you are amazing! We are very excited about this!

    Pee Ess The head peep is pretty excited, too. Have you ever seen a human who knows they can’t tell the humans around them about what they’re so excited about because the office humans will think she has gone ’round the bend? It’s like that.

  5. Wow, those are super cool! Nice job, Quint!

  6. Quint, we’re beyond impressed. You need your own art gallery…maybe even a touring exhibit. Really.

  7. We like these very much. Mom is taking our two paintings from Quint’s summer serious to get frames today. Heading over to the art shop to check out these new additions. Our mom loves the work of Van Gogh. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
