"If all the things we imagined actually exist somewhere, where would that be and what would it be like? The Le'Ruedunfrei series explores possibilities, and number four is no exception. As with the others, I did not know what I was painting when I began, but impulsively went for black in the lower right, blue in the upper left, and a swashing of green right in between them. The landscape from there built itself, I was merely privy to the exciting revelations first. I found particular thrill in the doming of the city, uncertain at first but trusting the canvas, and love how the colors persuaded me to reflect a mock rainbow along the edge. It should be noted that the underground city of arches is set on top of a sparkling black background that may appear solid black at one angle, or brightly sparkling at another." -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.
