Sentinel on the Bloody Angle

The Spotsylvania Battlefield in Va. saw one of the most bloody battles of the Civil War where Southerners fought to protect their way of life. This section of the battlefield is called The Bloody Angle.  This tree likely stood watch over the bloodshed and I chose shades of red to honor those who fought so valiantly.  C + C are always welcomed and appreciated.

This is a plein air 11 x 14  acrylics 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.
