Port Costa is a tiny hidden gem of the San Francisco Bay Area. It affords one of the many different views of Mt. Diablo from its now quiet rocky shore. In this scene, the local grassy hills have turned a typical soft buff color of late summer and fall. This piece is on watercolor paper and 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.”
