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!)

As the Hurricane passed...

Hurricane Tide(8x10, oils SOLD!) We recently had what was left of a small hurricane pass a few hundred miles or so offshore. What that means is we have some of the most amazing white ocean surf that can be seen anywhere!! Here's something I did after visiting Beavertail, in Jamestown RI. The waves were spectacular and amazing. I took alot of shots for reference. It's the best way to capture sea like that and as much as the romantic idea of painting in the wind captures your heart, it's also a pain in the arse to get set up and stay set up without alot of people around you, etc.
Lots more paintings to come!
