What a great idea this is and how I wish I had the time/discipline to emulate it! Duane Keiser is a Virginia artist. In addition to his regular work he has set himself the admirable goal of painting one small painting every day. Most of them are small oil sketches (he calls them “Postcard Paintings”). He posts the paintings on this blog and offers them for sale.
The paintings, almost by necessity, are direct and painterly. His subject is usually a single object – a strawberry, a chocolate, a small jar, a streak of sunlight on the wall. The choice of subjects is fascinating in itself. Occasionally he tackles a more complex subject or a larger canvas.
There are also a couple of short Quicktime movies that fast forward through the painting process (set to jazz).
