These are the typical golden grassed summer hills of Contra Costa County in Northern California. I enjoy painting the undulating and braided patterns, and one of my goals is to represent how very soft they look as the grasses are long and feathery. This piece is on heavyweight paper with a 1/4 inch border around the image. 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.”
