A special area in the downtown of my city was planted with birch trees, and designed with shallow reflecting pools as a veteran's memorial. I love the look of the planting, and the heart of the effort to honor so many who have served us all. The image is 20x14 on heavyweight paper. It will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Catherine

Catherine McCargar created her first work of art at five years old, a snowman drawn on blue construction paper. A group of artists invited her to try plein air painting and she fell in love. In her eyes, “the time spent composing and recording in the open air is invaluable to breathe life into a painting.” Catherine currently lives in California and loves tending her garden and being creative in the kitchen when she’s not painting. Fun fact: she occasionally writes stories for her granddaughter with accompanying ink drawings; she recently wrote a series called “Baby Owl Learns to Fly.”
