    I'm quite pleased to have four works included in Spectrum 21! The accepted works include this archer, titled Nelebrin Skirmisher, which I have not posted online until now. It was painted for the online card game called HEX.

    Also included are A Bargain Kept and Falling Fire (which I've posted before, but are also posted below) as well as one more image that I can't show you yet due to a non-disclosure agreement. Congratulations to all the accepted artists. I'm honored to be in great company!

    This new painting has been accepted to this year's Oil Painters of America National Exhibition! The exhibition will take place at The Bennington Center for the Arts in Bennington, Vermont, June 7 - July 27, 2014. Happily, this year's OPA National Exhibit will be close enough for me to attend without flying.

    Flowers don't seem to carry the same weight of symbolism that they used to carry in paintings, but just for fun, I decided to use night-blooming "moonflowers" in this painting. As an added fun conceptual bonus, these flowers belong to "the classic 'witches' weeds', along with deadly nightshade, henbane, and mandrake. Most parts of the plants contain toxic hallucinogens, and datura [moonflower] has a long history of use for causing delirious states and death. It was well known as an essential ingredient of love potions and witches' brews." Thank you, Wikipedia.

    Painted at my regular Monday night portrait group, Adrian's a professional bass player, and with a set-up like this I couldn't just paint his head.

    Hey Rob I really like all your paintings but especially your 'Transit in Moon'. It's great to see the success you are achieving and well deserved in my opinion. I can't help but notice that not only do you paint well and have cool ideas but your photography of your work is excellent to. Are you able to give some tips on how you do your photography?

    This was my entry for the Portrait Society of America's 6x9 mystery sale which took place at the annual convention last weekend. Artist's works are displayed unsigned and unnamed so bidders can purchase paintings based on what they like, rather than on name recognition. Artists names are revealed after purchase and of course, some buy in hopes of snagging a high priced name at a low cost, but for others it's wonderful way to become acquainted with new artists. Now that the sale is over I can reveal my entry.

    Thanks Marian Rowling! For photography, my most important development was using polarizing filters on my lights and on my camera lens to remove glare. Some claim these will deaden glazes, but I glaze very rarely so that's not a problem for me and I've found polarizers only enliven my color as they cut back glare. I use a Canon Rebel T2i with a fixed 50mm lens on a tripod, white balanced, and shooting in RAW format. Open the files in Photoshop to convert to TIF.

    I hope that helps!
