The gracious folks at Halloween Artist Bazaar have just posted an interview with yours truly… http://www.halloweenartistbazaar.com/featured-artist-interview-february-2016-grayson-fogg/
Recently, one of my first and favorite pieces, “Halloween Frolics”, sold, which means (of course) that the original is no longer available. However, prints are now available at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/5-richard-moore.html .
The EHAG Emporium has just opened its doors; click on the link at the bottom of this page to peruse the spooky treasures. Here is a larger view of my humble piece (click on the image for a larger view). But please do visit the Emporium; it is not to be missed. Close-ups may be seen at my Etsy shop… Prints of my work are now available for purchase, at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/5-richard-moore.html
For those tempted to visit The Autumnlands (and I cannot recommend strongly enough against it, even if you have the means), doubtless the greatest draw is magic. Its influence throughout the land is dramatic and pervasive, and the power and privilege it promises temps even its most modest practitioners. However, when dealing with magic, caution is paramount. The scene depicted in this painting is a perfect example. Here we find a group of friends sharing a lovely evening; for ambiance, they have used magic to provide the perfect view. Yet great care must be taken–by one of them, at least–not to overindulge, lest the wine take effect and compromise his or her concentration, sending thelot of them plummeting to the ground. This piece is currently available at my Etsy page, https://www.etsy.com/listing/183772801/a-twilight-affair-a-painting-of-a-lovely Prints of my work are now available for purchase, at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/5-richard-moore.html
Games of chance are extremely popular in The Autumnlands. Folks there–at least in my own admittedly brief experience–will bet on anything. from the semi-annual Coffinwax Derby to how long it will take a rawhead boogen to devour a pig left in an un-spell-protected pen by a careless farmer. One of the most popular games is quite similar to our poker, and has even more variations. However, caution is essential, as one version–played with a deck not unlike tarot cards–can cost a player more than worldly goods; a bad hand can doom an unlucky player to a very unpleasant fate. This piece has actually sold, but many others can be seen at my Etsy page, https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheAutumnlands?ref … And for anyone who’s interested, here is a work-in-progress scan of the piece at an early, sepia-tone stage. Prints of my work are now available for purchase, at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/5-richard-moore.html
A portrait of three gentlemen from The Autumnlands. Spookhaven, to be specific; a rare charming and “family-friendly” place in that enticing but dark land…and as close to human-friendly as you will find in The Autumnlands.Prints of my work are now available for purchase, at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/5-richard-moore.html
