Name:
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!)

Some NEW Small Paintings!!

The Golden Wave(8x10, oils on panel, SOLD!)
Tiger (8x10, oils on panel, SOLD!) Here's a couple of new paintings of the day. The top one is based on some pics I took on the West Coast, near Monterrey, with this wonderful golden light right about sunset. I worked my own embelishments into it, and just was really pleased with the result. The bottom piece was based on some images of a tiger I found, I just love painting tigers. Getting their stripes is very hard to do, and do right because the edges, up close, between the oranges and the stripes, are kind of diffuse. I love big cats of all kinds. I want to paint more, for sure!! I also painted both on panels, which I don't usually work on but in this case, it was just right. The paint sort of just moved around easier than on a rough canvas and this created it's own nice effects(like the background of the tiger). Anyway, remember it's Christmas-shopping season for those people who want one-of-a-kind presents!
