This blog is set up to give my students access to information relevant to the content of the classes I teach at UVU and BYU. I will be posting links to blog posts, websites, and news that will be of particular interest to them, as well as digital downloads of my syllabi and in-class handouts. I will also be posting student work and in class demos. The posts can be sorted for relevancy by the labels list on the left side. I've also integrated my Twitter account on the left hand side for quick links that aren't deserving of larger articles.

Duane Keiser

Duane Keiser has been doing "a painting a day" project for several years now. Though, now he does take some breaks. He looks for interesting small images to paint daily in a single session. Afterward he takes  a picture and sells them on eBay. This is a recent great one that he did. The red kettle is quite striking.


  1. This is great Peter. Just the simple concept of getting the brush mileage. Thanks for sharing.

  2. There are lots of people out there doing a similar thing, but few are as successful as Keiser, or work at his quality level. I started my own project just after the new year where I'm going to do a hundred small copies of paintings that inspire me. I'm doing them in oil on canson canva paper on about 5x7" pieces. I try only spend about an hour on them or less. It's been very educational so far. I have ideas for other "100" projects that I want to do. I will probably share them once I get to a certain number.
