Impressionistic landscape of filtered light in a botanical garden.  Grayish blue greens recede in the background and violet shadows create patterns in the foreground.  Urns of roses flank a vintage cast iron bench.  Atmospheric perspective draws the eye through the trees and across the sunlit lawn.  Gallery wrapped canvas painted dark brown/black on the edge. 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.
