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!!

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!)

Okay, back to painting....

A Line of Clouds and Trees.
Well, finally we get back to paintings. Or I should say, I get back to them. Whatever. I did this Plein Air last Fall, in a small park. One of the banes of some plein air painters is a sudden crowd of onlookers when there was nary a soul minutes before. In this case, kids on bikes. It kind of threw me off, putting it delicately. But, I will say, they were GOOD kids who had NICE things to say. The "adults" seemed put out I was blocking their view. I also did not like the canvas I was working on. I should have had a panel to work on, but oh well. Speaking of green and nice skies...I smell Spring coming soon to a hemisphere near you!

"I smell Spring coming soon to a hemisphere near you!" Obviously this was several days ago! Ah well, I hear warming for the weekend.

Nice painting, despite the interrupting onlookers.

It was when I could smell a hint of spring and not this accursed winter. I hate cold.
