A light-filled atmospheric landscape combining old world realism with a modern aesthetic. Uplifting radiant light, created by building up layers of rich warm color glazes, is reflected in the river. Encrusted layers of paint suggest the land which stands in dark contrast to the radiant sky. The eye is drawn up the river to the distant horizon where it is pulled upward into the golden twilight. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished brownish black 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.
