An expansive impression of a tranquil coastal scene. As twilight approaches, gold, coral and dusty purple clouds streak across the sky at the horizon. The gradient sky above shifts from blue to yellow, and all of these colors are reflected in the ocean and sand. The distant hills are shrouded in lavender mist. The water is already turning dark, and the incoming waves are casting dark shadows. Serenity and quiet emanate from this painting. 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.
