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!)

It's SPRING!!!

The Tree on The Hill(8x10, oils, SOLD!)I wanted to see some green, realizing it's now Spring. So I played around with clouds abit, and some greens and a tree. Note the contrasting angles of the landscape, and the clouds and that lovely texture. Nice little piece done in about 40 minutes. I like the clouds and how they came out, I'm sort of a bit influenced by the Barbizon school here, abit and more than just a little bit by George Inness, a painter of the past who did this luminous trees that always seemed to have this halo around them and really dramatic shadows.

Love it! Reminds me of that other painting I tried to buy, but sold before I got it. . . Ghosts of Constable I think it was called.

Keep up the great work!
