This was a ton of fun to paint this fall and finish up recently from life. I went back up on the hill several times to this location which is very close to my home. The challenge was to keep it in the fall colors after the leaves fell but since I started it in the fall, and had made several color studies then, it was easier to do. This was a commission for our neighbors and friends what live just beyond the view on the righthand side of this painting. 22" x 54" oil on canvas framed. SOLD . . . Thanks Minda and Buzz!
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.
