An architectural painting that captures the spirit of Palm Springs: clean stylish design, vivid colors, blue sky, a palm tree, and an orange car in the garage. My hot pink underpainting peeks through the luminous layers of paint, accentuating the vibrant sunlit surfaces. The palm and the reflections in the clerestory windows contrast organic forms with the hard-edged geometric shapes.

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.
