In this serene painting of a lazy day by a gentle stream, Catherine used muted light to set the mood, and warm colors in the foreground to give a sense of distance. A small, red roof house in the background draws the eye. The foreground cat-o-nine tails add charm to the landscape that is classically pastoral.

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.
