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!!

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!)

Dragons to the picture...

The Coast, with Dragons,After Church(8x10,oils SOLD)
This one is something I did in December, based on a Fredric Edwin Church painting of the MAine Coast, and looking at it again, I realized it would look better with some dragons swooping down as seagulls would.

That is a sweet little painting, 8x10 and you still get such an atmosphere! I love the light coming through the wings of the dragons!

Thank you sir!! Yeah. Sometimes you have to borrow from the masters, and, it's cool to give them the credit in part. The dragons seemed to be just what the painting was needing to start with. I like that kind of translucent membranous light. I'm doing lots more-it's a great way to study light AND paint dragons!!

I agree! The textures of the clouds and rocks along with the sea foam are spectacular.
