Inspired by a photo of the Isle of Skye in Scotland, this rendering neatly frames the end of the pier with the foreground foliage and the hills and clouds in the background. The brightly colored buildings on the wharf add a splash of color to help balance more of the muted tones of the background. 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.
