This piece attempts to capture that peculiar wintry quality of light on a less-than-sunny day. The subtle color palette stresses cooler hues, but even the snowy foreground has some warm tints to liven things up. The brushwork is energetic and the detail minimal for a spontaneous feel. The gallery wrapped sides 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.
