Art: Ludwig Knaus

So, every now and then I'll go from my current state of Never Using Pinterest to going super insane with inspiration and re-pinning every picture of country land or dark-haired boy imaginable, for my Novel Idea board.

In the process of doing so, though, I just happened to run across some pretty gnifty art by painter Ludwig Knaus.

There's so much emotion in the action and the faces of his people. I was especially struck by the painting of the girl in the field. She just looked so natural. I loved the detail in his work, the way he could convey a scene, a moment, a relationship with such gritty honesty.

What do you think of Ludwig's work? For me, it brings on feelings of nostalgia, melancholy, yet still manages to radiate this warmth. And there's usually little dogs in his paintings. YOU GO LUDWIG
