I found this charming backyard garden within a vineyard in the Livermore Valley, California. It is a subject that draws my attention because of the "light at the end of the tunnel," you might say. I am enjoying the garden here, but would like to see just what is through the archway, too. This is painted with transparent watercolors 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.”
