This is another winter landscape infused with subtle color. As the daylight fades, only the snow atop the chimneys and the two fir trees in the middle ground is close to true white. Otherwise, the snow is rendered in lavender, soft blue and pale cool gray. The hard lines of the architecture are balanced against the tracks in the snow and the hedge in the foreground, which add some much-needed curves to the composition. Not so much a statement work as one that captures one of the many moods of winter. The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvas are painted brown, and the painting arrives 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.
