"I snapped the photo I used for this work's reference in response to the colors in the sky as the summer sun was setting," says Robert Hofherr. "The composition here is fairly obvious - three horizontal bands. The color in the sky and especially the water in the foreground carry the piece, suggesting a late summer vibe." The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted a complementary brown.

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.
