You are welcome, Dan. I'm glad I visited the contest and saw your images. They are powerful. These are some of the types of art that heal...with the artist's ability to portray energy from the model or from their own idea of what they want to depict in the composition.

Thanks Eston, the model for this painting has since moved away. He was quite an inspiration to all the artists I was able to bring to him.

You have a fine and lyrically beautiful way of portraying the human form.

Very powerful idea Dan.....Voted

Add me to the list. I like this painting very much!

Thanks Ron, This one took two different shoots. Then all arranged electronically before the paint came out.

Thank you Tarak.

nice work!!

The workings of the human body is always fascinating- you made this one so

Gorgeous Work !!! Wonderful overlap transparency... Thank you Robert

Great piece, Robert... so deep and meaningful... love it... Ana

really very nicely done and again the mixing and overlay of images is wonderful.

Thanks Winston. I had a great time letting this one evolve. The subject is my skeletal anatomy model, who acted out all the poses. And btw, congrats on the new group (athletic figure nudes) you're administrating. Its a good fit for me.

I love this as well,the story behind it gives it extra depth.well done

Fantastic work!


Very cool piece Robert! Love the suggestion of movement...Wonderfully rendered!!

The photo i received is defective. It has a line across the top.

The quality is terrible. So pixilated and it literally looks like someone just printed it off from an image online. Not fine art, that is for sure.

I love the print, better than what I expected.

Artist's Description

"The Moment Before He Flies" is a desciption of those few seconds before the trapeze artist leaps from the safety of the platform beside his brothers. His timing must be perfect. I was so taken by this group of athletes. Their obvious talent in the air was breathtaking. But that moment before, I could feel the tension, the perfection, and then the inspiration to show you what it meant to me.
