Inspired by a family photo, Robert rendered this work in a fairly realistic manner, although he says not anything like the original image. Rather than too much detail, this painting relies on its thick colorful paint, applied quickly and with vigor. The boulder-strewn foreground leads the eye into the center, where the bright sun is reflected on the surface of the loch. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted a complementary brown.
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.

I had everybody over to my house for a Robert Hofherr welcome party!! Hope this is the first of many pieces I will collect. So beautiful. Even my daughter, who typically does not share my taste in art, took one look and said, "Finally, we agree."- C Hastings
