Portrait Society of America 6x9 Mystery Sale

I was honored once again to participate in 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.

Adrian on the Bass

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. Original painting available on Daily Paintworks.
