Special Art for Special Friends.

The sources of an artist’s inspiration are many – the seasons, a vision, a memory, a mood.

Last month after the sudden loss of big brother Seth, we were feeling low. Many, if not all of you, sent us hugs and purrs and good thoughts toward his memory. We read and cherished every single word. Thank you again.

Cherry City Kitties must have felt our lingering deep gloomy vibe despite all the good wishes and sent us a bottle of flower essences from Green Hope Farm specifically formulated as part of their Animal Wellness Collection for helping with feelings of grief and loss. CCK recently wrote up a wonderful post entitled help during especially sad times. We hope you find it as informative and helpful as we did.

In return for such kindness, and with Quint’s consent, we offered a very special Spring 2013 canvas painted just for them; for their friendship, concern and caring. The photo above is Quint’s art on display at the desk of Cherry City Kitties. Below are photos of Quint at work on this limited edition piece.

Thank you, Carolyn, Harry, Dexter and Tipp. A painted-paw toast to healed hearts and a wonderful friendship!

  5. Isn’t it wonderful how we fur people and our humans can connect with others all over the world? Mom said she cried when Seth went over the Rainbow Bridge and she never met him. She said she hoped that he connected with her old kitty, Mischief. Quint, that is quite the masterpiece that you made. We are totally in cat awe of you.
