Plein Air Pastel Landscapes
American West Collection

“Though I have traveled the world painting en plein air, it is the vast desert wilderness of the San Luis Valley and the American Southwest that has captured my soul. For more than a decade I have been studying this valley’s changing moods. Every season offers its unique charm, from the golden bloom of late summer chamisa to the fleeting deep freeze of morning hoar frost.”

"Angela Manno's pastel landscapes have a delicate reality, a depth and a warmth that
appeal to the inner soul.  They invite the viewer to return to them again and again.”

.— Private Collector, Warwick, NY

“Angela Manno's vision awakens us to the beautiful planet in which we
are embedded. In doing so she helps us to remember all that we have
foolishly destroyed and inspires us to nurture and protect our
living treasures for the future.

“This is the calling of the true artist -- to show us how to see. Given
the imperiled state of the beauty she records, we would be wise to look carefully.”


— Albert J. LaChance, Ph.D., author of
