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!!

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!)

Storm Surge...

The Surge(8x10, oils, SOLD!) The bad Nor'easter inspired more "weather" and sea art. I love how this came out. I find some of my best seascapes are imagined ones. Homer tended to work this way, as did Aivazovsky. Aivazovsky was just awe-inspiring.A friend sent me this link and you can see more of his work : . I kind of like dark, moody, threatening oceans. They lend a sense of mystery and lore to them. This painting came together in about an hour or less. It almost painted itself....lots of medium, lots of palette knife for the rocks. I am using this as a guide to do something bigger someday. Next up? Still more rough weather, this time...LOOK UP and run!!!
