I went up twice to paint at one of my favorite spots on the parkway and Polly came up with me the second time when I needed to go back. This is not at an official overlook but between two. I LOVE to paint from this spot in every season and have done all but the winter, perhaps this year I will bundle up and try. (A hold on this for Ryan till after the weekend.) 24" x 48" oil on canvas, framed SOLD! thanks Ryan and Bethany!
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.
