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!)

The Cold Sun

Cold Sun(8x10, oil $100) Somedays, the sun just hangs there, and, like my friend Leslee says, the sun "is like a smile from a person with a headache". That just about sums it up on winter days. Here is a remembered landscape. That is I saw tthe sun like this and ran in and just applied paint until I had it. The landscape is just an experiment in receding colors , using some warms in the foreground to give the illusion of more depth.

Heh. I forgot I said that. Nice painting! It was very blue here late this afternoon - at least the snow was - but the day was more brightly sunny. No sun headache today.
