This violin plus 16 others will be auctioned by the Charlottesville High School Orchestra to raise money for its trip to Italy this summer to participate in a music festival. I don't know the dates yet, but will add them when I find out. This was fun to paint, even though I sat for months pondering what to do . . . once I got started, it just came to me. Highest bid was $340!!! 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.
