Duane Keiser studied painting under Raymond Berry at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia, and Lennart Anderson at Brooklyn College in NYC. His "A Painting a Day" blog has been written about in numerous publications, including USA Today, The New York Times, and The Huffington Post. When he first began the project, he used a makeshift easel made from a cigar box and made a postcard-sized painting each day, and posted them to his blog where collectors could bid on them via eBay. The project is ongoing (though not quite a painting each day.) He is also known for his "painted animations." A modern take on the still life, these videos combine traditional painting, animation, and time-lapse.
He has exhibited at Fischbach Gallery, Allan Stone Gallery, and, most recently, the New York Academy of Art. His work resides in several corporate collections and thousands of private collections worldwide, including the Gregory Peterson Collection.
His teaching experience includes Randolph-Macon College (1990-present) and the University of Richmond (1992-2007. ) He has taught workshops all over the country in addition to his online courses.
He currently lives and works in Richmond, VA
