In this painting, Catherine used bright and soft colors to express her affection for a walk in the garden. Her foreground brushstrokes emphasize the play and sparkle of light in foliage. "The viewer can imagine the excitement of meandering through a well tended garden, that is, with good planning, new every morning," she says.

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.
