Linda Shelton, acrylic painting, 24×36 , Costa Rico sunset

My daughter and her family went to Costa Rico last year and loved it so much. She shared some photos with me that they loved, so I painted one for them for Christmas. It isn't an illusion, the painting is frames on three sides with a dark blue/ brown.  I did it that way to work it into her decor which is black and greens. Had fun with this one!

About Linda Shelton

I graduated with a degree in secondary art education. Taught a few years, had children, loved the creativity of the young, got certified for early childhood and worked in the field for 30 years as well as teaching art in elementary school. Loved all the experiences but am thrilled to get back to my first love, painting. Yeah!  I am inspired by light inter playing with nature and figures. As I am painting I am drawn into the scene and its story. It is my desire to share a moment of time that reflects God' glorious creation. I welcome lots of feedback. Tell me where I need to grow. I am having the time of my life.
