This is my kind of garden; in full bloom, and crammed with a splendid variety of pretty things. The subject matter delights me not only because I love gardens, but because it requires a lot of negative painting where I drop colors into the wet spaces and let the watercolor do its thing.

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.”
