To the Chase

A long held tradition, fox hunting began in part as a way for farmers to protect their stock. As fox populations decreased, the hunt became sport, not to kill, but to "chase." Once the fox goes underground, "gone to ground," the ride ends. This is my contribution to the June photo challenge. I began with an acrylic underpainting thinking I would finish in oils, but I liked the spontaneous look, so I left it. This is a 9 x 12 acrylic on linen. Thanks for looking!

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.
