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!)

New Mexico Skies....

New Mexico Sunset(8x10, oils, $100)
I was in New Mexico in August and painted this. The skies are fairly amazing there at sunset. The strange "curtains" hanging down are created by downdrafts in the clouds and are verga-basically rain that doesn't reach the ground. At sunset it creates some fairly spectacular shows. I was snapping all kinds of sky and cloud pix while there. Like anywhere you go, the sky is truly unique to it's locale, despite it's all the same atmosphere.
