I know this is not the best photo but I will try to replace it when I can . . . this was from last weekend on Sunday at Miller School when it started out hazy and cool but turned 89 degrees and sunny. So I didn't change the sky and back mountains because as a plein-air painter you paint what you have. Really enjoyed the opening tonight, thanks to Sharon, Annie and the chef's . . . and everyone who came out!
16" x 20" oil on canvas, framed $300.
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.
