Duane Keiser's "oddment" paintings


Artist Duane Keiser, who does the A Painting A Day blog sells beautiful little paintings, like this one of a marble, for $150. They're called oddments.

What's an oddment?

Oddment means "a remnant or part of something, typically leftover from a larger piece." I originally made these very small paintings on pieces of board leftover from my larger paintings. They are typically about 3"x2.5"

Unlike my Postcard Paintings, I post oddments on my blog without email notification. If you see an oddment available, email me at keiser@duanekeiser.com and put the title of the painting you want in the subject line. The first person to email me gets it.

Duane Keiser's Oddments



  1. I like them. They’re simpler, of course, but they remind me of the meticulous Dutch still-lifes from the 17th century.

  2. I like it! Mr. Keiser’s paintings appear to be very successful! I have been looking for some one-a-day ideas to liven up my own shop! Don’t worry, Duane, I’m not a painter, and I’m not particularly into creating still-lifes, but I like the idea. I’ve been thinking of doing a drawing-a-day.

  3. How mundane & overpriced. For $150 you should expect more than a business card sized still-life of an everyday object.
