As the title suggests, this work attempts to convey that sense of cold and wet that is so pronounced here in the mid-Atlantic in late autumn. This does not preclude me from using color, but many of the hues are less vivid. The simple composition, with the road drawing the eye in, is enhanced by the minimal detail and energetic brushwork. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted brown, and the piece 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.
