The scene is in Point Reyes Station, a quaint coastal town north of San Francisco, California. I painted it in the plein air tradition, standing amongst the grasses of the late summer field, enjoying the peacefulness and surrounding mistiness of the scene. This transparent watercolor painting is 10.5 x 13.5 on 140 lb paper that measures 11 x 14.

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.”
