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!!

My Photo
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!)

Walkin' on the Beach...

Mackeral Beach(Sold-$100) It's a warm day and summer thoughts are not far. Again, I'm on a deadline to finish a cover, so right now I'm using my backlog of paintings so you can enjoy. Warning: there may be a day or two break next week, but don't panic. I have alot I'm juggling at the moment. I did this in 2005, on Jamestown which is in the middle of the bay. Plein air and, the painting has been SOLD! The piece was done, on location and, is exactly on the other side of "The Cove"(see December 22nd) with a road inbetween. I sort of edited out a home that was built on the high ground off to the left. Hey painters are allowed those things. Albert Bierstadt "moved" El Capitan in Yosemite because he wanted the painting to look better.
