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 firstname.lastname@example.org and ENJOY!!
- Name: Bob Eggleton (Zillabob)
- 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!)

Those castles are irresistable...
I got to play around with clouds abit more. I like the result. The paint is rather textured but I think the result justifies that. The object here was to play with clouds, sunlight, and some misty shores. I want to get more into the large, romantic type works. It's alot of fun to do these.

Pictures-top down- Greg Manchess and Tor Books Art Director Irene Gallo and me. Middle-Donato Giancola(his own set up to the left) looks on adding the comment he liked the atmosphere I was painting. Bottom-Steve Hickman(right) and onlookers. This is the part I am scared I'll screw it up in front of everyone!

When the Volcano Blows...
I felt like some warmth. It's been 60 or 70 all week and now it's gone to the 30's and, it's snowing. Global warming, it's happening. I could also attribute this painting to the week I have been having. Yep, that kind of week still. Eruptions. Fun little painting. I have thought about painting alot smaller than I have been, and wanted to see how this would work out. Again, my love of volcanoes shines here. All in all, a 15 minute painting.
*Note on the price-this is a smaller piece, 5x5 and I have included a frame with it, that matches it.

A Quick Update.....

Towers and the mists...
No, not Lord of The Rings...but, another castle idea...two ruined fortresses perhaps at one time at war, and now forever separated by an abyss...yet bridged by a rainbow. I love rainbows. Nature's play of light...refracted through moisture and broken down into it's spectrum. There. How's that for doing "okay" in High School science? Fun piece, Constable was my guide for the clouds.

Castles Tall, I've Built Them All...
A note-I'm going to be more sporadic. Please do check in with my blog, but I'm coming into a "busy" time, so, I am fairly stating the paintings will be more like 3 times a week, maybe four if doable. I just don't want to feel like it's "one more thing to do", and I 'd rather put the joy into them. So, if a few days goes by and nothing new appears, fear not, I will be updating soon!!! This whole thing is for both yours and my enjoyment, so please bear with me-thanks!!

The Road to Shambala...

Okay, back to painting....
Well, finally we get back to paintings. Or I should say, I get back to them. Whatever. I did this Plein Air last Fall, in a small park. One of the banes of some plein air painters is a sudden crowd of onlookers when there was nary a soul minutes before. In this case, kids on bikes. It kind of threw me off, putting it delicately. But, I will say, they were GOOD kids who had NICE things to say. The "adults" seemed put out I was blocking their view. I also did not like the canvas I was working on. I should have had a panel to work on, but oh well. Speaking of green and nice skies...I smell Spring coming soon to a hemisphere near you!
