Acres of History

This is done from a photo of a local farm in our area. Here in Northern VA, we have many Civil War battlefields, this farm was one that saw the Union army attack Stonewall Jackson's unit across this field and Jackson successfully defeated them.  It is an 18 x 24 acrylic on canvas.  C + C are welcomed.

About Christina Evans


I was born in New Jersey, my family moved to California when I was young and now I am living the country life in Spotsylvania, Virginia with my own family.  I paint in an impressionistic style and the subject of my work is always light and the mood associated with it.  I use photographs, sketches and memory to capture the light and shadows and the essence of a particular place.   With a supportive husband and two children who love to paint along with me, I have the wonderful opportunity to pursue what I love to do.  I appreciate all feedback on this site,  I think that is the best way to keep learning and improving.
