I painted this on Monday with Eileen and Polly but we were spread out a bit and not in sight of each other at the new parkway that is not open yet. They have a wonderful bike / jogging lane that runs along side the road. I painted this railroad tunnel from a new walking bridge. Two trains went by above where you see the skylight. Still needs a bit of tweaking! 16" x 20" oil on canvas, framed, $325.
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.
