About the Artist: Barbara McGeachen is from Rensselaerville, N.Y. Barbara’s inspiration comes from her love for all animals and nature. She enjoys capturing and freezing moments in time, both real and imagined, that warm the heart and soul, or maybe make you smile. Art has been part of Barbara’s life from an early age and for the past 7 years she has worked mainly in watercolor. She has helped beautify our area with her submissions to the Cat’n Around Catskill cats and the Quackquack Greenville ducks projects. She has also been creating custom stained-glass pieces for about 20 years. Barbara is self-taught and has attended several watercolor, drawing, and oil painting workshops by local artists. Barbara creates and exhibits most of her artwork in Albany and Greene counties. She is a member of the Greene County Council on the arts, the Bethlehem Art Association and Stanley Maltzman’s Tuesday Night Sketcher Group at the Greenville Public Library. In addition, Barbara enjoys participating in Bill Carbone’s weekly Watercolor Workshop in Catskill, with a group of painters of all ages and levels of experience.
