Quint Supports the Niblets.

As it turns out, Quint likes the Niblets! We think he’s going to be a wonderful, playful Uncle to Illy, Viola, Robbie and Russell. But while he’s waiting for them to grow big enough to play with, he’s been painting. And we wouldn’t be telling the whole truth if we didn’t mention that sales of his art will certainly help pay for the Niblets’ upcoming vet checkups, first shots and spays/neuters (not to mention Erinn Zuzu’s spay too because the Niblets are definitely her last litter).

Last month Quint created his Touch of Autumn 2013 series that some of you are hopefully enjoying. Quint likes working with different colors and you know how much he loves the color yellow. Good thing Autumn includes yellow leaves which he dabbed on with a light paw on each painting.

And you know he loves oranges and greens. Autumn is a great painting time of year for him and we think he did a good job.

Next, prompted by Oui Oui’s Mom, and help from Mr. Mousie number 197, Quint tackled creating a dark version of his Masters-Inspired Starry Night 8×10 acrylic. This is a heavy art paper version of his Starry Night on 4×4 canvas and the dark twin to the lighter version of the same 8×10 size.

Quint checks Mr. Van Gogh’s version while Mom snips off Quint’s ears in the camera frame. Somehow fitting, Mr. Van Gogh might agree.

This is the look we get when we take too many pictures while he’s painting. Or maybe because again, his ears were cut out. Okay, Quint, we’ll back off… a bit.

We snuck in one more as he was finishing up with the blue, before he dabbed on the yellow moon.

A finished painting. If you like kitties and you like art, you’d be helping Quint help Erinn and the Niblets by checking out and taking home one of his paintings. Please visit Quint’s Art Shop. Quint, Erinn Zuzu and the Niblets thank you!

  14. Quint…your sweet little paws are most talented

  15. Oh Quint… You almost brought a tear to my eye there. I’m wellin’ up with pride knowin’ that I can say I know you. What an AMAZIN’ uncle you are! You saw a need and right away, put your artistic skills to use to help with the Niblets’ upcoming doctor’s bills. You’re one amazin’ cat, my friend. ONE AMAZIN’ CAT.


  16. I love to see you working on your art Quint! Although yeah, to have that requires that you have to deal with the dumb camera.

  17. Wow, what super art work. Have fun.

  18. Bonito trabalho Quint. Fico contente que sua mamãe é sorrateira, assim podemos ver você trabalhando hehehe

  19. oh that is incredible quint, we finally see the artist at work.


  20. Oh Quinn…your Starry Night is really very very appealing to mommy!!! (and you are too) (so are the Niblets)

  21. Quint, we are too impressed with your talent!!
    You do such nice things for good causes.
    The Niblets are very cute as is Mama kitty 🙂
    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
    Treasure,Tiger, JJ and Julie

  22. Oh Quint, what a gracious Mancat you are, helping to support the Niblets and Mama Erinn! We absolutely love your paintings and hope to purchase one in the future when Clooney prints more money off the press! In the meantime, we hope they all sell out so you can help the new little family.

  23. Quint, you’re such a generous ManCat. We just came from the gallery and ordered a Starry Night for our Mom. We know she’s going to love it – especially because it will help support the Niblets and Erinn!

  24. You’re so talented and generous Quint! The painting is lovely!

  25. Lovely Painting Quint,xx Rachel

  26. That dark starry night is a masterpiece. I had to buy it!

  27. Oh shoot … I see I was too late for it.

  28. Quint you are far better than old Vincent!! Just meowing!!

  29. That Starry Starry Night is beautiful! Can’t believe you still put so much into your art, Quint, while other teenagers are getting into trouble.

  30. sqquueee! I just luvluvluv that one Quint! How ever do you do this? Don’t you get paint all over your paws and furrs??? Does it wash out??? OMC, such talent

    • Why, thank you, Savannah! I just dip my paw in the bowl; sometimes mom helps me get the right color, and then I tap the paper. The paint only gets on the bottom of my paw, sometimes on both and maybe a little on one back foot but I don’t mind much when mom washes it off. Wet paws just go with the territory, I guess!

  31. Stopping by from the hop and this is the first time I’ve seen Quint’s art…very nice indeed

  32. Bravo Quint! Mom says keep us posted if you do any fall 4 x 4 canvases, she’s got the perfect spot on her board at work for another piece!
    (my word, you are looking very grown up Mr. Quint! Mom Carolyn)

  33. We have been having blogger issues, and we had problems leaving comments with you, but we are trying again (we noticed our comments from the other day finally showed up). Quint is really an amazing artist and we love how he hung “Starry Night” to inspire him! We found the purrfect mats, and are looking for the purrfect frames for his art.

  34. Wubbikins REALLY loves her “Starry Night” that we ordered from Quint a few months ago. It is beautiful and Quint is very talented. He and our Wubbikins are the same age and I think she has a bit of a crush on him! Just don’t tell Waffles!

  35. Wonderful art! I love it! He doesn’t mind the wet on his paws? Thank you for linking to the Pet Parade, you’ve been pinned!

    • Yippee for Pet Parade pinning! Quint has never really minded wet paws too much so paint or the cleaning off of paint from them hasn’t been much of a problem. He has large paws so maybe he just figures big paws are bound to get wet one way or the other?

  36. Good job Quint on that painting !
    You are such a good painter.
    Both me and mom LOVE the Starry Night´s that we bought from your Artshop <3
