Virginia Shackles
Big Sur Coast Seascape

$495

About

Vibrant seascape of the Big Sur coastline by California artist Virginia Frances Shackles (American, 1921-2020). Signed "V. Shackles" lower left. Unframed. Image size: 14"H x 18"W. Virginia Shackles was painting a foggy scene on canvas one day when she gave her young grandson a lesson in how to make infinite colors with different blends of shades. Colors don’t exist only in a box of crayons, she told him. Using photos, sketches and postcards from trips, Mrs. Shackles painted elaborate scenes with oil and watercolors throughout her life. She often included her grandson on her inspiration-seeking travels, part of her effort to expose him to the world. Ms. Shackles loved to paint cliffs and ocean scenes in the coastal city of Monterey, Calif. She died of complications from Covid-19. Virginia Frances Turner was born in 1921 in Wichita, Kan., to Wyotte Dellavan Turner, a piano salesman, and Frances (Land) Turner. She moved to California with her parents as a young girl. Mrs. Shackles worked in a store that supplied religious items for Catholic churches and met her husband, Frank J. Shackles, there. They married in 1950. She also worked as an advertising representative for a local newspaper. Mrs. Shackles was drawn to the Monterey coastline and was inspired to paint it.
