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!)

Farmer in The Sky....

I did this as a cover for the upcoming re-issue of this Heinlein classic. Done in oils, 18x24, it ISN'T a "painting of the day" so, it's not the price of those(that only applies to the smaller works). Anyway, this was fun to do, and I wanted it very landscapy and vast. In the book the sky was green but, green is not a good color for bookcovers, they say, so, I made it a more inviting turquoise/blue....and I think it looks better too!
