Sierra Art Trails 2013 Catalog # 76
Craig Schub has ventured out to roads less traveled to get a sense of the terrain and vegetation that is reminiscent of the plein air paintings from early 1900s. Along the way, he found that the Sierra Nevada foothills is a treasured spot in which to live and paint.
Craig works exclusively in oils and is inspired by the ever-changing conditions when painting outdoors. You are likely to see him with his rig, painting along the road or in the middle of a field of cows.
Craig’s painterly style reflects his graphic sensibillity from early years of working in an advertising agency, and the influence of turn-of-the-century plein air impressionism. His current body of work pays homage to his love of California’s coastal villages, working cattle ranches, farmland and the Sierra Nevada.
