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!!

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!)

Mars on my mind...

Martian Dust Storm(8x10,oils SOLD) Phoenix will land on Mars, in the polar region this coming Sunday. It will be fascinating to see what views we see. Mars is an amazing planet. It seems we know it so well with our recent explorations by our roving probes- Spirit and Opportunity-two of the best investments that really went above and beyond everyone's expectations . I'm also fascinated with tornadoes and windstorms...and MArs has it's own versions of that. In this, we see two Martian dust devils towering into the thin atmosphere. While imposing and huge, they're only a breath compared to the tornadoes we see on earth(like the massive one that struck north of Denver, today. I'm planning some bigger Mars paintings of late, this is just a quick taster of things to come.
