I have passed this farm many times, and this image derives from a bright, sunny day producing bold colors and strong contrasts. I have allowed the main barns and silos to anchor the composition, while minimizing the road and the pond in the foreground. The clouds are rendered in thick vertical strokes, giving the sky an almost solid feel. This work will make a strong visual statement wherever you hang it. The sides are painted brown, and it comes 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.
