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 Road to Shambala...

The Falls in the Forest(8x10,oils SOLD!)
THIS is more like it! Based on a waterfalls I found someplace near Seattle, I painted this fun piece in about an hour. Going back to my "Memory of The Trees" post, I used palette knife to a great extent on this and created a really nice "feel". I happened to be listening to Three Dog Night's Greatest Hits at the time(I love 70's music) and "Shambala" came on and when I stood back, I realized this was The Road to Shambala in terms of everything came out the way I wanted it to. There's a CD I can listen to a hundred times reminding me of simpler times. I think the palette knife will feature prominently in any new works, it just gets more and more fun to work with. (A note-3/3/07-I supplanted a new shot of this, done in the sun, so it may appear different and, hopefully better)

Thanks! This was a joy to do. I love the landscapes out there, the greenery and such. Very scenic everywhere you look.
