Silverbells and Cockleshells All on a Rainy Day

It's been a bit crazy here lately with the end of school, so I haven't had a chance to post let alone paint!  My kids wanted to play a game so I said let me do a small quick study first!! This is the effort, and yes, done on a rainy day. Here in good old Virginia we are in the midst of yet another thunderstorm. So I'm happy with the way this came out, it was done with deliberate strokes, no fussing, no detail….just enough to tell the story! Can't ask for more than that. It is a 10 x 8 oil on canvas.  C + C always 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.
