Glencoe was created by Mande Calhoun-Gaffney in her signature landscape style. Her work is minimal yet impactful, letting the shape and colors define the feeling of the piece. This art print is subtle and soft, with interesting contrast and movement. It features a beautiful blend of color temperature- cool and warm tones, and unique green tones throughout.
“I painted Glencoe in September of 2020. Because of the Covid pandemic, we had not traveled all year and, like everyone else, we barely left our house. It was the first time I had felt like painting in months. Normally, when I paint, I get everything out and have the world at my fingertips. But while painting Glencoe, I was focused on the idea of limitations. I wanted to use minimal tools and colors in the composition without feeling like it was lacking anything.”

"She takes out her contacts, then she paints." That is not a true statement, but that is her interpretation of abstract painting. Having terrible vision, without correction, she sees only colors, shapes and some depth. Mande paints in that mindset. Her goal is for the viewer to feel and or see her vision without having it be a perfect replica of a place or thing. She takes great pride in imperfection. You can shop Mande's full collection here.
