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!)

The sea and a waterspout...

The Waterspout(6x8 inches, oils, SOLD!)
Okay, I said more smaller paintings. I miss doing them,but with all the stuff going on, it's hard. Small paintings "ground" my mind, as it were. Like meditation, or Yoga. Anyway, here I am back at them. I got inspired by Constable and Turner (speaking of, NEXT MONDAY, 7/23 10 PM EST, PBS- Simon Sharma's Power of Art- He's featuring Turner!!!) and did this little number. In fact, Thomas Cole, another great artist painted a waterspout as an allegory for nature over man. Maybe that was on my mind of late too. I long to see some ocean soon and we may do just that on Sunday or the meantime, expect some sea paintings.
