Profile: Duane Keiser
Bouquet on a Sill at Night 7 x 6" Oil on Linen
"For me, these paintings are about the pleasure of seeing;
of being cognizant of the world around me
and pushing to find an alchemy
between the paint, my subject and the moment."
Duane Keiser's work has a unique perspective, a fascination with light and space and a rich sense of playfulness. He is well known for initiating the "Painting a Day" movement which encouraged many other artists to begin the discipline of producing a small finished painting each day and offering it for sale on-line to collectors - the beginning of a marketing approach that has empowered many artists. His paintings tell stories of day-to-day life and the beauty of moments happened upon within it.Learn more about Duane Keiser in our in-depth interview.
Keiser graduated from Randolph-Macon College in Virginia (where he has since taught) and received his MFA from the Brooklyn College. He has also taught at the University of Richmond in Virginia. He has exhibited in solo exhibitions at the Fischbach Gallery and in group exhibitions at the Allan Stone Gallery, both in New York. Most recently he has shown his work at the New York Academy of Art. Keiser's paintings are in corporate collections and hundreds of private collections around the world.

The Artist's Road Store
Max the Easel Butler is an ultra-light tool that fits most easels, and creates a great platform for your palette. Replaces bulky, rigid shelves and attachments. Mounts in seconds. It can even mount on the side two legs rather than the front to allow more room to be closer to your painting. We like it so much we keep one in every painting kit! Also in our Store: Check out the tools and other products that we use in our own art and travels. We only offer things for sale in our Store that we enthusiastically believe in.
