15 minutes

I dont' have a lot of time to do much this week except work but, I did think I could take 15 minutes to post something. So here are a few little acrylic paintings. They each took about 15 minutes to paint. I hope that explains the lack of craft and hands. Nothing really exciting. I didn't even know what they were going to be until I started putting something on paper. I guess he's a pirate of some sort and she is.. um.. beats me.

I'm currently working on another Ghostville Elementary book and it's keeping me very busy. I did the cover last week and I have to do the interiors this week. I missed last weeks Illustration Friday because of a these pressing deadlines and I'm afraid I might miss this weeks too unless I can find an extra 15 minutes.

Thanks Neneuche. Sorry, I'm neither French nor Canadian. I think my mom just liked the name. Glad you stopped by.

15 minutes? You're my hero. Both are lovely but I especially like the rosy-cheeked Grecian.

Kactiguy said...

Aha!! A Grecian! That explains the urn she is carrying. It's all starting to make sense now.

I like your name, Guy, because it invites so many good puns! I like your art, Guy, because you're very talented. Keep up the great work!
