The setting for this light saturated landscape is a tree-lined private road leading up to an ancient chapel in Tuscany. I was taken with the variety of tree shapes and the interesting purple shadow crossing the road, as well as the alternating light and shadow of the trees lined up along the right side of the painting. The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished brownish black 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.
