Dramatic dreamscape created by building up layers of rich, warm color. This painting is my interpretation of uplifting radiant light reflecting off a river surrounded by encrusted layers of paint to suggest land. Active brushwork lends movement to the clouds. Gallery wrapped canvas with finished dark brown edges. This work 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.
