Artist Statement

My paintings capture the fleeting beauty of nature, as well as places that are in danger of destruction. Most of the simple beauty in life is overlooked, or unappreciated, and my work focuses on those things that are lost to our eyes as we hurry through life.

Artist Bio

Cathy Harville is largely a self-taught artist, and has been painting for several years. She paints both open and closed landscapes, and uses color as a tool too express her subjects. Cathy is currently working on a series to capture the landscape of the former USNA Dairy Farm in Gambrills, MD. The farm has been the subject of possible re-zoning, jeopardizing its rural nature. She is also working on paintings of Patuxent Ponds Park, a little known, but beautiful place that is wild and natural. Cathy is currently working in pastels, oils and watercolors, and also experiments with mixed media. Cathy resides in Anne Arundel County with her husband, and dog, Dakota.
