An interesting combination of bending and fallen trees and a meandering stream causes this unusual natural visual, which I was fortunate enough to see and capture in a personal photo. The painted version makes use of Fauvist colors and energetic brushwork in the attempt to create a compelling statement. It hearkens back to similar works by Derain. The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvas 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.
