"The background is a charcoal black with matte black shadows for the string and pegged images. You may note some texturing along the left and right edges, it is a ghost film strip that's been redacted (blacked out) for symbolic purposes only. I did not know this was what I was painting when I started the simple landscape, but the moment I had it down, the green field and rippled water demanded I paint an UFO and alien looking out at more incoming so, I painted it. Naturally, I had to include a torn map piece of Area 51 as well, and kept it simple. I hope this piece speaks to a S.E.T.I. enthusiast, or UFO memorabilia collector. The benefit of my painting style is that it doesn't have to make sense to me for me to trust it will speak to someone looking for that one of a kind piece of Art to fit their lifestyle. The unique script reads 'the truth is out' and then random letters for the ones running off the edges." -M.E.
"Aloha! My name is Mandy Elliott and I'm a self-taught Vango Artist originally from the Space Coast of Florida and now residing in the Heart of Virginia. Creating isn't just a passion for me, it's a part of me. I come from a background of artists, musicians, mechanics, engineers, and carpenters. One thing we all have in common is an ability to imagine something and then make it real. Some of us also share the ability to understand what others imagine and make that real. We are inventors and innovators. It's those skills which got me through a troubled home we called "Hells Gate", and gave me success in the corporate world from Sales to Escalations Management. None of that fulfilled me though, and I had to ask myself why I limiting myself when I could unleash myself into something I love? Art. I'd been creating and selling my Art since 1998, but in 2010 I dove in to the part of me that creates from the inside and found my preferred medium is paint. I've showcased in Melbourne Florida, Orlando Florida, Historic Kissimmee Florida, Cincinnati Ohio, and since September 2016 I have Artwork in an Earth Art collection in Space, courtesy of NASA's OSIRIS-REx mission to the asteroid Bennu. #WeTheExplorers ... I watched NASA launch shuttles from the Cape, viewed from my back yard as a kid, and now I have Art in Space. I'd say my life is complete but... creating Art isn't something I can just turn off anymore. I am a Painter." -M.E. ______________________ _______________________ [[ All artworks protectively sealed, ready to hang, professionally shipped with a certificate of authenticity (CoA), Artist Pamphlet, "Talking About Art is Hard..." greeting card to give insight and talking points about your specific painting(s), and a hand written note from the Artist.
