I was struck by this orange farm building when I first saw it, and decided to base a painting on the scene. I let the road's curve lead your eye into the middle ground, where it is echoed by the chute beside the low silo on the right. The colors are bold and the detail minimal. I like the contrast between the placid buildings and the slightly ominous sky behind, as a possible storm begins to build. The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvas are painted brown, and it arrives wired and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Robert

Robert Hofherr avoids depicting a landscape exactly as he sees it or as the viewer might expect. Instead, he enjoys reimagining landscapes and painting his pieces indoors at a fairly rapid pace. The works of French Fauve artists Maurice de Vlaminck and André Derain initially got him interested in painting, and also influenced his decision to not use grey in his works. During his free time he enjoys spending time with his kids, walking his dogs and taking road trips to out-of-way places in the mid-Atlantic region. He currently lives in Maryland.
