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!!

My Photo
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!)

More Summer Thoughts...

House on The Beach (9x12, oils, $100) This is another one that I did, on site up in Provincetown, Mass on the Cape. 40 minutes session with sand blowing on me the whole time(the elements are always the challenge of the outdoor painter). To create some of the actual high grass, I scratched out some paint. It's a fun trick when it works right. I liked the shadows I got sort of along the edge of the path. I think I got that just right, considering the sun was in my eyes. It's now the "between" holidays week, The Twilight Zone of the year, which nothing really happens and like kids out of school, you want to take the time off and kick back.

Hi Bob!

Thanks so much for the comment and the link, I added you and Marianne to my blog links too :)

What a beautiful painting. I love the scratched paint grass, what a great idea!

Merry Christmas too :)

Makes me want to be there, right now, only with the weather as it appears in this painting. Alas, with global warming, in the next few years this could come to pass! Oh wait, the Cape? Under water. Never mind. ;-)

Nice painting.
