This was painted last week with my friend Eileen. We had gone back to this same site a week before and I started a really big one, 36" x 48" but VERTICAL for a commission. We were thrilled to see that the bales where still there, and I wanted to do a panoramic view of this farm. Mirador farm is where the "Gibson Girls" lived way back in the 20's I think. (Sorry that the photo has a shadow on the right hand side.) This is hanging at the show at Westminster Canterbury for the month of November. 12" x 48" $550. SOLD
Meg West went to Philadelphia College of Art, majored in Graphic Design, and minored in Painting. After working for several years as a graphic designer, in 2000, she started painting again full time.
West paints as a localist, focusing her painting in Albemarle and surrounding
Counties, as well as Skyline Drive and The Blue Ridge Parkway.
Meg paints every day and enjoys the rhythm and momentum that comes with a steady flow of painting. The act of painting is what is important-enjoying the feeling of being connected to the environment, herself and the painting.
