“I have been painting for 35 years,” says Keyser. “I find the most rewarding form of painting to be the portrait—for both the artist and the sitter. There is nothing more flattering than to see yourself captured as a lasting work of art.”
Keyser works in the alla prima method, which is Italian for “at first attempt”. Combining a foundation of classical portrait painting with a spontaneous and expressive style, he completes portraits in one sitting. He considers each sitting to be a conversation between artist and subject, capturing the fluid energy in a one-of-a-kind piece.
Oil paintings start at 24 x 24 inches, and larger formats are available, up to 48 x 48 inches. Portraits can be either shoulder-length or full-figure.
Keyser attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania. He has been working in a private studio in Lambertville for several years. Those interested can call or email to schedule an appointment.
