Here are northern California's grapes, ready for harvest, waiting in their rows that lead the eye through to the rolling hills beyond. This is always a splendid part of the California landscape, and I look forward to the times I am able to stand at the edge of the vines and take brush to paper. This scene is painted on heavy watercolor paper without margins and will require a frame in order to hang.

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.”
