This little creek is located in Danville, California, on Finley Road. I find that I am drawn to more complicated subjects, the intricacies of the interplay of branches and leaves, of light and shadow, in a setting like this. I also enjoy looking through and beyond, so the barn in the distance and through the woods is the destination. I've painted to the edges of the heavyweight watercolor paper, and 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.”
