This is one of the larger paintings that I started this past fall and just finished. It is from one of my favorite spots, the second pullout on the Blue Ridge Parkway going south from top of Afton mountain. Right before this spot we have the parkway, Skyline Drive, Interstate 64, Route 250 AND The Appalachian Trail all going through this ONE AREA! They overlap and cris-cross each other, there are so many views to paint here! 30" x 40" framed, oil on canvas. $1,100. 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.
