This is a detail of a Mid Century Modern house in Palm Springs. The straight lines of the iconic architecture contrast with the organic forms of the rugged hillside in the background and the flowing palm trees. Early morning sunrise bathes the mountain backdrop in orange sunlight. The windows with partially drawn curtains create an ambiguous narrative.  

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished dark brown 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.
