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!)

Heating things up!!!

I did this, a second dragon for the gallery in France. I call it "Firestorm Dragon". You'll recall some months ago, I did a sketch and decided to go ahead with a full oil painting. I liked alot how the castle was just disappearing into the flames. Lots of fun to paint! Enjoy!!
A Note 6/2/07-I redid a few things had a decent transparency shot of the art, and here it's presented a little better. The size is 24 inches long by 16 and 3/4 wide. You can see it's alot brighter than before!
