This work derives from a personal photo taken during a hike on the North Central Railroad Trail in Baltimore County, Maryland. I was attracted to the glow of the bright sun, and how the trees and foliage "framed" the buildings naturally. I accentuated the color palette, especially emphasizing the complimentary purple/yellow tones in the scene. The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished brown edges. It comes 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.
