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!)

A Summer Place....

Evening at Nauset One of my music inspirations, is Percy Faith's version of the "Theme to A Summer Place". They just don't make music like that anymore which is why it's remembered so wistfully. I often think of that song while doing these kind of paintings. This is one of my backlog of paintings(buying time while some other stuff dries), from Cape Cod, done in about a half-hour, on the beach as hurricane swells rose the tide to spectacular levels. Worked really fast as the light was fading on me, but bringing out these amazing cloud colors, as only evening can.
