This is a light filled serene atmospheric landscape combines old world realism with a modern aesthetic.  The style of this painting lies somewhere between abstraction and realism.  A sky of blues and soft clouds hovers above a defined horizon and a panorama of peaceful velvety green fields.  Loosely defined features in the field create a composition that directs the eye. The overall effect is cooling, soothing, and calming. This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished dark brown edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Mandy

Mandy Main is an art historian and landscape painter based in the Southern California desert. She has long been passionate about 19th Century American landscape paintings, which has been influential in her artistic practice. Mandy works in series, generally three paintings at a time. Her process begins with a vision of a place she has been, but she takes creative liberties with the aesthetic details. The artist is captivated by light and shadow, and strives to instill her work with moody drama through the representation of these elements. Using layers of paint and glazes, Mandy achieves mesmerizing atmospheric depth, encouraging the viewer to gaze and be still.
