This painting began as a plein air piece that the artist then finished in her studio. The "sentinels" are eucalyptus trees so often seen in northern California. Catherine used her skills in the handling of color and value to give the viewer a sense of being on the path that promises, in the distance, umbrage from the bright California sunshine.

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.
