The Noyo River meets the Pacific Ocean at Fort Bragg in northern California. I have noticed this peaceful scene on the shore near the mouth of the river while kayaking past it on other trips to Fort Bragg. This year I set up my easel and took it all in. It is painted in watercolor and gouache to the edges of the paper, and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Catherine

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.
