This is a commission for Molly and her family near Batesville, VA, not far from our home. I had invited three painting friends to come paint also and there where young children running around that made it all more fun. I need to tweak this a bit but close to being done. 30" x 40" oil on canvas. Thanks Molly!
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.
