Bob's ART du Jour

Hi, I'm Bob Eggleton and this is my painting and "life in general blog" but mostly paintings. Usually they're for sale. Anyway, if you like something contact me at and ENJOY!!

Location: New England, United States

I am a Hugo award-winning fantasy/SF artist who works on both publishing projects and film concept work(such as Jimmy Neutron and most recently, The Ant Bully) but I have a passion for landscape work, small paintings and exploring the properties of paint. This blog will mostly showcase my "painting-for-the-day" as kind of a personal voyage. I'll also be inserting sketches,photos and ideas of projects I am working on, that I can, when I can, so look for those every so often(usually as paint is drying!)

Happy New Year!!

Abalone Shell(8x10, oil, $100)I, for one, am thrilled to see the end of 2006, a truly awful year.It can be said that a new year is like opening a shell and finding something incredible inside. Abilone shells are indeed amazing inside! Their fractal and fleeting colors, that seem to change on whatever light is being reflected on them, are equally fleeting to capture in paint. This is an attempt at such, 8x10 inches, done in about 40 minutes.
