This contemporary landscape uses multiple layers of glazes built up to glow with an ethereal light.  A radiant harbor is flanked by landforms in soft focus on either side.  The eye travels upward, along vertical streams of light on the water, to the horizon which is highlighted by horizontal beams of light.  The palette consists of blues and soft green grays.  The overall effect is peaceful and dreamlike. 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.
