This work is a bold, colorful take on a placid scene. The upbeat color palette help to give the piece visual impact, and the moderate detail and expressive brushwork provide energy and spontaneity. For lovers of all things marine, this is a dash of color for that uninspired wall. The sides 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.
