This artwork is primarily focused on the formidable sky, and the lower half was deliberately kept simple and subtly colored so that the sky remains the hero. Rather than rendering realistic cloud formations, the sky is presented in a very expressionist manner, almost a frenzy of color. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted 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.
