A striking vertical landscape with fresh tractor tracks on a bucolic pasture. "The idyllic perspective carries the eye from the deep grass of the foreground to the lavender foothills in the distance," shares artist Mandy Main. "This then opens up to the diaphanous clouds against a cerulean blue sky. Several stands of trees catch the light and cast long shadows along the way. The composition is an intricate balance of vertical and horizontal lines with warm greens in the foreground becoming cooler towards the distance."

Mandy Main

Rancho Mirage, California

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.

Mandy, my favorites are all of your paintings that are almost all cloud and sky, and just a little of the landscape. I'm not an art person, but I really love your paintings. Thanks

Thanks Sanjeev. The paintings are series of layers, some applied with brush, some with knives, and some with ragged on washes of color.

Being a learning raw artist myself, I liked the texture that is created in luminosity. Is it just through the brush that various shades of yellow are done? I am asking myself. Really interesting!!

Nice work Mandy. I particularly enjoy Halcyon. Reminds me of the days of my youth, studying the beautiful cloud formations and dreaming of what was to come.

D Sherry Boggins style="color: #000000;"1/29/2012 | 1:05 AM

Beautiful work. Reminds me of Turner. Sensational use of color. Intriguing subject matter A real future for Main. Watch her grow. Very collectable!
