I was obviously channeling Van Gogh in this piece, using layers of bright color, applied thickly to form dense areas of interest within the composition. The palette is bold, but the use of yellow, tan, and gold help to balance the masses of green foliage. Detail is sufficient for a visual understanding of the scene, but the energy of the paint handling and the color relationships should create a compelling viewing experience. The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvas are painted brown, and the work 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.
