I have worked on this painting over time, refining as it unfolded itself before me. I loved the mystery of the deep mist of the surrounding area, and made that important in the background. The rest of the painting, as well, is suggesting that winter is well on the way at this farm in Livermore, California, not far from where I live.

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.
