"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 dozen 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 various exhibitions 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 is an Associate Member of the prestegious California Art Club.

Real estate agents often want a custom painting of that new home for that new homeowner as a house warming or "Thank You" gift. Smaller painting collections are commissioned as holiday or birthday gifts as well. You can submit your custom request and photographs by e-mailing Bob Raser through this web site. Affordability and free framing make each painting a perfect one-of-a-kind gift. Prices vary with canvas size.
