((SPRING CLEAN SALE: was $200)) "Blue began this journey to a Dream Window, bringing me a tranquil sky and longing mountains wit nothing but land between us. I didn't know then, the sight would be seen from a window, but when the notion struck, I had to paint it. Favoring natural beauty, I went with an imperfect wood frame that does wrap around the edges so there is no need for framing, this piece stands alone as window frame to this snowy landscape. The Dreamcatcher is in gold and pearl purple with iridescent blue illuminating the feathers. The carving along the center frame is in Ysywuh, it means 'dream' and is meant to encompass the enchanting art of daydreaming. That is what I do for a living, and it's taken me nearly 20 years to be able to imagine something and paint it without a reference photo and so, allow the canvas to come to life through me.

"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.
