I found a photo I took a couple of years ago in Delaware.  At first I was going to do a wide expanse with the farm as a backdrop.  But when I looked closer I saw a small patch of blue flowers that seemed to be reaching up for the warmth of the sun. I had a good time building layers and playing with the temperature of the shadows. Please let me know what you think.  This is a 6 x 12 acrylic on canvas.

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.
