An evocative contemporary landscape with a teal blue sky. Soft creamy yellow light illuminates the horizon line and high clouds. The minimalist composition shows distant hills on the coastline and either land or water in the foreground. By avoiding detail, my focus is on the uplifting quality of the light and an atmosphere of serenity. A very meditative painting. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted a dark espresso color.

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.
