Catherine developed a soft, warm background to highlight these delicate and papery seed casings. The silvery, translucent lunaria dance around the stunning orange lanterns, complementing each other and nicely contrasting the lacquered black vase. "I wanted to bring beauty and excitement to the wintery landscape," 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.
