The sailboat in the center is the focal point, with its vertical mast intersecting the distant horizon. The large diagonal of the rocks adds structure and helps to focus attention on the sailboat. The brushwork overall is free and energetic, and the color palette bold, which turn this simple image into something more visually interesting. The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvas 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.
