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!)

Missing Green....

Green Falls(8x10, oils SOLD!)
Well- a painting! I really miss doing these with the pace I was doing last year. What can I say? Things got really super busy. But I am at that time of year that I start missing "green". Leaves, grass, etc. Granted it's been incredibly mild this month, and I say "bring it on!" if we have more warm days ahead... I did this based on some photos I had from Oregon. The forest was lush and rich and I attempted to capture the feeling of a far off sliver of light. The falls drop off about 70 feet, so it's vertiguous to look over the side of the cliff. Not that I would have cause to. My fear of heights is paralyzing. Even standing on a chair is an issue for me. Anyway, I have a bunch of new pieces all in the waiting and planned. More to come, so enjoy!!!

Very nice. I love the green, and the light. Very welcome this time of year. Weird weather - thunder today here, but I hear it's supposed to snow on Sunday night.

I'm with you on fear of heights. I stood along the cliffs in Mendocino in California several years ago and I still get the willies just thinking about it.

Thanks Leslee. This was alot of fun. I need to do less detail and do more atmosphere and drama. Get back to basics of what I started.
