"Plein-Air Bob" Raser Fine Art
Bob Raser ["Plein-Air Bob"] delivers paintings and commissions filled with optimism and sunlight, much like his personality. Raser has always been a "storyteller", both in his paintings over the past ten years as a full time artist, and prior to that as a career network television producer/director. After attending workshops and one-on-one sessions with noted California plein-air fine artist Tim Horn, Bob settled on a painting style "where the sun is bright and the shadows deep". Raser travels yearly from the coast of Maine to California's Wine Country to both paint on-location at these beautiful places, and to take part in advanced level workshops with many of the nation's top plein-air painters. Bob's paintings have been jury selected for the "Face of California" exhibition at The Santa Paula Museum of Art, Santa Paula, CA., as well as jurried exibitions by the Thousand Oaks Art Association and the Channel Islands Studio Gallery. Raser is a painting member of The Allied Artists of the Santa Monica Mountains and Seashore, and the prestegious The California Art Club as an Associate Member.
