Ray Knaub (b. 1940)  Artworks >>

A landscape artist whose studio is in Denver, Colorado, Ray Knaub paints scenes that are gentler than mountains, especially prairie landscapes in states extending from western Indiana. He strives to achieve mood in his bucolic subjects. One of his major touring shows was called "The Great American Prairie," forty large-scale landscapes offered in 1999, and he also wrote a book to go with the exhibit. He grew up in Scottsbluff, Nebraska and loved spending time on farms watching the weather. He carries that habit of immersion of himself in his surroundings into his painting preparation, often spending several days in a place to get a feeling for its special qualities, which he then transfers to canvas in his studio. One of his favorite places is the Sand Hills of Nebraska with its birds and lush grasses and ranch settings. Source askart.com
