Old trees are often beautiful. When the sun is shining through the branches the charm is all the more so. I hope the viewer will be transported in this unusual impressionistic painting. I let my imagination play with the colors and the light.
This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.
Walnut Creek, California
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.

I had this picture done for my wife. It's been her family home since 1943. I spoke briefly with Catherine on the phone and shared a few pictures with her that we have from various times over the last 70 years. She chose to use a beautiful older b/w photo of the house and went to work. She knocked it out of the park. My wife LOVED the painting and its actually being framed as I write this. Catherine was easy to work with, very professional and finished our job quickly. It's now a prized possession and has a prominent place in our home.- K Flynn
