About this artwork
In this contemporary impressionistic scene, artist Mandy Main captures the sense of racing through the desert just before nightfall. Headlights illuminate glimpses of road and greenery in streaking lines of light, and in the distance, a striking mid-century house is silhouetted by the deep blue sky. The last gleam of light shimmers at the horizon and a sliver of moon and the first stars are beginning to appear. The thrill of speed on the diagonal contrasts with the horizontal calm of the peaceful horizon beyond.
