Spencer Meagher

InFocus recently visited the home studio of Southern Illinois watercolor artist, Spencer Meagher, to view his original paintings and to explore the inspiration behind his work. Meagher enjoys using vivid color and shadow to express his view of the world and says creating art is how he gives thanks to his Creator for being blessed with the ability to paint. Meagher, who also teaches painting workshops, says he is always seeking new ways to improve his craft. While visiting Meagher's studio in Geff, InFocus filmed the artist as he created "Spring Thaw," a beautiful watercolor painting that depicts icicles melting from the roof of one of the sheds on his property. To learn more about Meagher's art and workshops, see samples of his work, and sign up for his newsletter, visit his Web site.
