I had friends coming down over the weekend, and since my guest bedroom is also my studio, I couldn’t work in oils for the week because it would make it all fumy and oil painty and turpentiney for them. Hardly a welcoming smell. Luckily, a friend recently hired me to illustrate a children’s book that he wrote with his daughter, and I had already decided to use acrylics for it. So, I spent the last week and a half or so working on those illustrations. It’s a super cute story about kids looking for a Christmas present for their mom who stumble into a book cooking store. Chaos, of course, ensues. Eleven paintings later, my hand is just about ready to fall off, but I’m pleased with most of them. A little tweaking here and there is necessary, but they’re mostly done:
