An upcoming trip to France motivated Mandy Main to create a small series of paintings of her favorite French landscapes using a Van Gogh-inspired palette. This scene is a spectacular view of the Dordogne River from the village Domme, looking down to a bridge, the unfolding fields, and the far distance dissolving into a muted haze. The gallery wrapped edges 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.
