Jim McFarlane

President Emeritus of the American Watercolor Society
Signature Member of the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, the Philadelphia Water Color Society and the National Society of Painters of Casein and Acrylics

Jim McFarlane is a nationally and internationally recognized artist and popular teacher. He is equally comfortable painting traditional representational paintings and non-objective abstractions. Either way, his paintings are inspired by the close to home beauty of his native Pennsylvania, and by his travels at home and abroad. Jim finds the quiet solitude of a rural retreat and the clamor and cacophony of the city are equally of interest as subject matter.

“If I knew every painting would be good every time, I would find no reason to paint. I’m always looking to learn and I’m as much a student as a teacher.”
