This simple study of apple trees was clearly influenced by some of Van Gogh's works. I covered most of the fore- and middle ground in fairly uniform color marks to suggest the pattern of fallen apples without resorting to painting each individual fruit. The Venetian red underpainting also shows through in places, giving an overall warmth to the work. The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvas are painted brown, and 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.
