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 Ocean...More Mysteries...

The Sea That Tells The Tale (9x18 inches oils).
I did this as one of two paintings for a Newport RI gallery show. Small works, and I always love painting the ocean and shores, in sort of a romantic way. That is, I tend to make up alot of it based on years of having seen oceans. Anyway, this is a piece done in a day, that has a cautionary tale to tell. If it does not sell in the gallery, it shall be posted back here again!

Some new...some revised...

The Waterspouts(9x15 inches, oil on panel)
I did this marine painting for an upcoming gallery show in Newport RI. If it doesn't sell I'll repost it here. I reallllly like painting water, and rough ocean. Notice the ancient vessel off to the right...

Dragonlands(10x10) Oil on linen canvas. SOLD!
I had done the background and volcano image earlier this year. The painting waited for something else to be in it, and then, the idea of the dragon hit me so a few weeks ago, I put him in and , voila, the painting was now complete! I plan on making a large size version as well, like 3 x3 ft!
