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!)

Volcano at Sunset...

Sunset Fire(8x10, oils, SOLD!)
I have always loved Fredic Edwin Church's enigmatic painting "Cotopaxi" and in the spirit of that, plus a nod to Lord of The Rings' "Mount Doom" I did this. I really like painting nature in action, whether it be this planet or, another. This one is a little gem and one I enjoyed immensely painting. I find landscapes work for me best because of their ability to invite one to make up one's own story around them. While busy these days, I still manage to get out a few pieces when I can, so, I will continue to do so. Enjoy.
