A quiet, peaceful meadow near Lime Ridge on Mt. Diablo in California. Catherine explains that at one time, this area was bustling with mining activity. She focused on two points of interest in the landscape; the aging oak tree and its rusting companion, an old water tank. "In naming the painting Aging in Place, I wanted to acknowledge that being able to grow old in the same place one has lived for many years is a beautiful blessing," says Catherine.
Walnut Creek, California
Although originally from the East Coast, Catherine McCargar has been a Californian for many years. Her representative impressionism reflects the California landscape and her world travels. Throughout her portfolio, she creatively plays with her color palette, giving each work her distinct style. She paints regularly in her home studio, and has been a selected member of the San Francisco-based Jade Fon Painters group for over a decade. Through this, she has gained experience painting outside on location in all sorts of weather together with a group of accomplished artists. The experiences, observations, and critiques of that plein air group strongly influence her work today.
