I pass by this clearing near some farm outbuildings in York County, PA frequently, and was intrigued by how the trees in the foreground "frame" the distant center where the buildings and truck sit. To reinforce this, I used the brightest tones in the clearing itself, and arranged the trees and foreground into an almost circular shape. I used only minimal detail, and allowed the flat, medium-sized brushes to dominate the surface. The sides are painted brown, and the piece comes ready to hang.
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.

I had everybody over to my house for a Robert Hofherr welcome party!! Hope this is the first of many pieces I will collect. So beautiful. Even my daughter, who typically does not share my taste in art, took one look and said, "Finally, we agree."- C Hastings
