Morning light on farm fields creates this effect, as the road travels ridges and valleys. I adapted the title from an old folk song from the UK. In keeping with the Fauvist sensibility, the colors are rich and the detail minimal, allowing the graphic power of the work to be at the forefront. The sides are painted brown, and the piece 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.
