No. 512 Duane Keiser Workshop

DK Workshop Exercise #3
Oil on linen board
7" x 5"
In September I had the terrific opportunity to take a workshop from the man who initiated the daily painting movement, Duane Keiser. Yes, this is the fellow who came up with idea of creating small daily paintings and successfully selling them without the help of a gallery through Ebay. What an amazing concept this has been for hundreds, possibly thousands of artists including myself. The still life above is very Duane Keiser in it's subject matter. My favorite part is the extension cord. If you would like to check out more of his work click here.

DK Workshop Exercise #2
Oil on Canvas Panel
8" x 8"

Duane tried very hard to get us to loosen up and see the big picture by focusing on large shapes and color relationships. The painting above is about 65% mine and 35% Duane. If you are interested in his philosophy click here for a great interview.
