BORIS VALLEJO ARTWORK




Boris Vallejo

O.K., I usually bombard you girls with history, herbs, a long winded story or one of the many zillion questions in my head for that moment…I work you’re brains most of the time…so, this week I thought I’d go easy on you.

I have been a fan of Boris Vallejo’s artwork as far back as the early 80’s – the guy’s just got talent beyond this world. So, I thought I’d share the magick with you this week. Above is a link to go see the rest of his work. You will be amazed!

See – I went easy on you this week!
Hugs to you all
Hawk

Oh gawd, HAWK, I'm scarring the crap out of me...I am the first to comment *gasp* That doesn't happen to me often these days LOL

Anyway, cover love, art work, I love to talk about this subject and this one is beautiful, a bit scare and erotic all blended in to one composure...wow. Love the color scheme too. Is it my dirty mind or is there a flash of the male root, his love wand, the center of his deisre, his second brain et cetera...sorry, my eyes so get drawn to it. Okay, gets mind out of gutter now *wink*

Is this artist doing his stuff for Fantasy books??

Stephanie Faris said...

Love that picture! Although I keep staring at her buttocks.

Lea said...

Hey Hawk!!

Breathtakingly beautiful painting. OMG the detail and imagination is spectacular.

I'm going to have to hunt and see more.

Great post Hawk!

I hope all is well with you. ;)

Judi Fennell said...

yeah, we discovered him years ago and have at least one book of his artwork.

Vicki said...

OMG, his work is amazing. Thank you for sharing it. I can't say that I've knowingly seen his work before, but I'm hooked now.

Man, can you just imagine how his artwork would be on the cover of one of our books. :)

Sidenote: we've (by we've I'm mean Science Guy), have sanded the front door. Eight, yes eight, layers of paint. One was even Barbie pink. But after three hard days, we're finally putting on the stain and it's beautiful. Very old door looking.

Hi Hawk!

Beautiful piece of fantasy art work, is that a tail, part of her wing, wrapped around his ankle. And I do believe that the other may be correct, the manliness is apparent, but slightly concealed. I love the contrast on her body against his, light and darkness, possibly angel and demon, but which is which.

Dottie :)

I love his artwork! Beautiful!!!
I also like the Hildebrant brothers,they do lovely fantasy artwork too. I always wanted to paint like them, but I ended up leaving art school.

Now look at me...;-P

Cecile said...

OH Hawk, this is a beautiful piece of artwork. Agreeing with Leontine, her mind is in the gutter, but I am staying there with her... because that is a piece of peek-a-boo anatomy.
And I agree with Dottie, I love the contrast of colors between the two of them. Dark vs. Light. Passion, vs. Desire. Good vs. Evil. Demon vs. Angel.
And yes Dottie... I think that is part of a tail from her wings (I am guessing) wrapped around his ankle. The detail to the body is amazing.
Humm.... feel a story coming on... Will be back! =)

Cecile said...

Oh, almost forgot... How was your weekend Hawk? I hope you had a great weekend and are having a wonderful Monday!

Leontine,

Sorry it's taken me so long to answer...I'm on vacation and wasn't able to get to the computer right away.

Boris is a wonderful artist who has been around for awhile now...I'm a real fan of his! All his work is sexy and fantasy futuristic like...

You want to get your mind out of the gutter...NO!!! It's more fun here... *wink* There's nothing more beautiful than the human body! Nothing more romantic....enjoy.

Boris does have several books out...you'll find it in any book store!

Glad you liked the blog this weekend!

Hugs

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Stephanie,

Oh, I was too...it's a cute butt. That's what I love about his art work...male or female they're both beautiful to look at.

Nothing wrong with staring - that's why he does the work that he does! To make you look.

Hugs
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

LEA (((Hugs my darlin')))

Glad you like the work...he's a wonderful artist...I just had to share.

I'm on vacation right now - Enjoying Las Vegas and visiting with me twin sister...

Hugs and Love

Hugs
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Vicki,

I'm so glad you like the art work by Boris...isn't it great.

Ah, sounds like a lot of hard work going into your new home...good luck with that. I'm sure the door looks beautiful.

Houston A.W. Knight said...

LOL, Dottie, I don't know the answer to this...but I do know I think it's a sex photo that makes me feel all warm inside. *G*

Houston A.W. Knight said...

I've always loved his work too, Hawk! My husband did a documentary on him many years ago when we lived in California. Lots of fun.

One thing you can never say about him is that he lacks passion. He has it in spades.

Hugs, sweetie! May you have peace this week.

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Sia,

Thank you for the kind words and wish that followed...I will have a great week. I'm spending it with me twin.
BTW, she's looking good for just getting out of the hospital. All's well.

Oh, how exciting - to interview Boris...Oh I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall during that...I'd love to tap into his brain on where his creativity comes from. I just love his images.

How you doing, darlin'?

Hugs
Hawk

My Blog 2.0 (Dottie) said...

Hi Hawk!

Give your sis a big hug from all of us and I hope she's feeling better. A visit from you is like a big warm bowl of chicken soup, good for what ails you!

(((hugs to you both)))

Dottie :)

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Dottie, you're such a sweetheart. I let me sister read your beautiful note and she said to tell you THANK YOU and that she thinks you're a beautiful soul to think of her. Then she turned to me and said...now tell me everything about her because I like her already...I showed her your site...

She loves it! You two have Tinker Bell in commen...me sis has me sleeping in TB's bedroom...so if you can't find her...no need to worry...your Tink has been with me for the past few days, she and all her little fay friends glow at night at me from the walls.

Dottie, you'd love this room! It's a TB room. I thought of you the minute I saw it.

I've told me sister all about you girls and I've shown her all your wonderful comments throught the year...
Each and every one of you girls are a blessing in your own special way. I'm so lucky to have such wonderful cyber friends.

hugs and love
Hawk

Vicki said...

Hawk,

Hugs to your sissy and I'm sending lot's of good well wishes. I'm so glad you're there with her. Spending time together has to be more than wonderful. I remember talking to her on the phone almost a year ago when we were at M&M and knew instantly she was not only a great sister, but an amazing person. :)Please tell her I said hi and hugs.

xoxo,
Vicki

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Vicki,

My sister says "Thank you for the kinds words and she hopes you're doing well as well."

Yes, it is great to be here and see for myself just how she is doing and to see she is fine and recovering well.

Vegas is Beautiful and having great weather.

Hawk

Liza said...

Hey Hawk! Beautiful artwork. Thank you so much for sharing with all of us.

My Blog 2.0 (Dottie) said...

Hey Hawk!

Tink has been in a wandering mood lately, so I'm not surprised that she's with you in Vegas. She'll bring a glow to your world and help keep the blues away. You know, she does have an ornery streak, so if your missing socks, your favorite pen, or even a book or two (she's a book lover too), you'll know where to look.

Have fun with your sis, she'll be as good for you as you are for her.

((hugs))

Dottie :)

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Liza,

I'm glad you enjoyed the art...he is one of my fav's. I love the romance in his style...fits my love of the romance for sure!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Dottie!

I'm thinkin' Tink might have a secret life over here in Vegas...she's everywhere...and she lives here in my sister's house when she's in Vegas! *G*

Yes, it's good to see my twin...and she's doing fine...only four weeks into her healing so she's not moving around too much but she still finds ways to keep me busy!

Hubby and I were on the strip yesterday and found a beautiful Silver Faerie necklace and ring that matched some earings my sister has ... I couldn't believe it ...and it was 70% off!
I love deals like that!

Lots on deals going no right now (here) because it's there off season.

I wish all you girls where here to meet me twin and hang out...she'd love each and every one of you.

xoxoxo
