This is a bold, graphic, modern take on a group of workboats from the Chesapeake Bay region. Large blocks of color — white, yellow, blues, violet and deep red — create the main compositional elements. Only the water in the foreground is treated with any real detail, as blobs of color suggest the play of light on the surface. The sides of the canvas are painted brown, and it 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.

Just a fabulous piece that grabs the eye when people see it on my wall. Extremely happy. Great artistry, Mr. Hofherr!- M Cellucci
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
