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

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.”
