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/
I just added three new pieces to my Etsy shop (https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheAutumnlands?), with a new color piece coming on the 31st of this month, at the EHAG Emporium (http://ehagemporium.blogspot.com/). These pieces are smaller and simpler, making them more affordable for those looking for some spooky art without the usual fine art price tag. This will be an ongoing series, so be sure to check back for more updates.
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 .
For any who missed its unveiling at the June EHAG Emporium, here is my own modest contribution. Just looking at it makes me pine for the street markets of The Autumnlands… Well, some of them, at least. (This original piece is available at https://www.etsy.com/listing/193298613/gourmets-a-gentleman-ghoul-and-his?ref=listing-0 , and prints are available at http://fineartamerica.com/featured/gourmets-richard-moore.html?newartwork=true )
The air is hot and stifling, your perspiration-soaked clothes cling to your skin–it can only mean…Halloween is approaching? Well, perhaps not. But the June EHAG Emporium is right around the corner, and just to pique your curiosity, here’s a teaser of the piece yours truly will be unveiling when those creaky doors swing open on June 30th, at 9 pm EST… Be sure to stop by http://ehagemporium.blogspot.com/ at the appointed time to see the full piece…
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
