can't capture in a photo, " he explains. " I'm also usually working
in a window of two or three hours before the light changes, so
I'll often finish the painting in the studio. "
Whether painting close to home or far away, the artist is drawn
to water. In 2018, finding that he had captured a dozen local
waterways on canvas, he formally set out to paint all of the
remaining major creeks, lakes and rivers in the region.
Many of the pieces of places on his original list are already
in private collections, but Russ remains deep into the theme.
You'll discover water in well over half of the paintings in this
refreshingly outdoorsy show.
DECEMBER FEATURED EXHIBIT
WOODS, WATERS AND OFF-THE-WALL
Paintings by Keith Rentschler
Usually working from photos that he takes on frequent travels,
Keith's oils reflect a talent for stunning realism. Visits to the
coast of Maine usually include paddling around harbors to
harvest close-up shots of colorful lobster buoys. His close-up
paintings of them and their wavy reflections on the water tend
to be quickly scooped up.
You'll also see impressive detail in Keith's landscapes, which
range from Pennsylvania woodlands and streams to both coasts.
Recently he's been taking his talents outdoors to paint on
location, and finding success there as well. The critics agree:
in Plein Air West Reading 2021, he took home Second Place
and Artists' Choice awards.
There's widespread appreciation for Keith's representational
style of painting, but behind that eye for detail are also a wild
imagination and wicked sense of humor. Occasionally they all
meet on his canvas. Picture a beautiful sunset from the beach
on the rugged coast of Oregon...with Godzilla emerging from
the ocean depths.
In Woods, Waters and Off-the-Wall, you'll find it all. Artistic
flair. Perfect balance. Clean lines. Remarkable precision and
attention to detail. And occasionally alien creatures.
Where Berks County Gets Engaged
Penchants for precision and detail have served Keith Rentschler
well in his successful career as a carpenter. Since 2013, when he
decided to dial back his carpentry work and pick up his paints
more often, those same qualities shine through in his paintings.
