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 zillabob@cox.net 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!)

Take The Long Way Home...

"Does it feel that you life's become a catastrophe? Oh, it has to be for you to grow, boy. When you look through the years and see what you could have been oh, what might have been, if you'd had more time."

Heard these lyrics in a song by Supertramp, one of my favorite "vintage" groups and the music rings so true today at about the same time I learned about Patrick Swayze's possible terminal cancer diagnosis. It reminds me to make more art for me, not just commissioned work. It also should tell everyone, do what they dream. Don't let the idiocy of politics get in the way.

Just some thoughts...

So true but we often let the cicumstances of life dictate how we proceed. That reminds me of a couple of painting I WANT to create, not just the orders to fill.

I whole heartedly agree with you, but try telling life to 'give it a minute while I paint this last wart'. Always dreamed of having one of those watches that could freeze time...
