This is the second painting of this subject that I have completed. The subject has such a lovely welcoming feeling that I wanted to paint it a little larger this time. I was taken with the way the sunlight glowed through the trunks of the trees where the dense foliage met the edges of the hilltop.

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.”
