A light-filled, color saturated view of a swimming pool and it's tropical landscaping.  Sunny yellows play off of vibrant blues.  The clean lines of the stucco walls and buildings contrast with the organic palm foliage and background mountains.  Large urns holding giant bamboo stalks face the pool.  Interesting reflections play on the surface of the water.

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.
