A moody landscape with dramatic white clouds swirling through a dark blue gray sky.  A gray highway disappears between tall evergreens that run along either side, more evergreens ahead dissolve in the distance.  The vertical orientation increases the drama and the soaring stature of the iconic trees.  The road draws the eye in and the composition leads it upward.  This painting is on 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.
