Light filled seascape of a majestic monolithic rock on the Pacific Coast. A multi-hued pastel sky contrasts with the looming shape of the rock itself which is defined by dark shadows and fiery highlights. The rock and sky are reflected in the foreground where the water laps onto the sand, creating a lacy pattern which stands as an essential element of the composition, guiding the eye up to the rock and then back to the illuminated horizon.  

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished 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.
