The stunningly red color of the vines in this particular vineyard in Sonoma wine country really beckoned me to paint. This is an up-close-and-personal view of the vines themselves with the lovely neat barn and cool hills in the distance.  This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

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.
