This is the first of several that I will post from this past weekend in the Highland County Paint Out. A big thanks to Liz and Suse that run the show there . . . three of us went and stayed at Patti's cottage and had fun despite the weather being very grey and rainy for half the time. Eileen and I found shelter under an old abandon gas station in High Town. This is from there looking north . . . I painted two more undercover there and will post tomorrow. 8" x 8" oil on MDF board, framed $110. 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.
