I found inspiration for this piece at Alameda's Crab Cove in the Bay Area of Northern California. It was a morning in June, and the beach was fairly deserted. I was attracted to the shape of the group of trees and shrubs out on the point, at some distance from the shore where I stood. This piece is 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.”
