This work attempts to capture that moment in spring when all of the buds have burst into a riot of color. I kept the detail to a minimum in favor of broad strokes of vibrant color. The composition is straightforward, with everything eventually focused on a walkway which leads to a solitary figure and the front door of the large dwelling in the middle distance. The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvas are painted brown, and the work arrives wired and 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.
