Had fun this weekend up at the Memorial Weekend at Wintergreen, much cooler up on the mountain top. Lots of live music, food and brews . . . many people came out. (You can see my booth in the center of the bottom photo, I had a good spot!) And Julie just emailed and wants the Winter Scene painting . . . hey! Thanks Julie!
My friend Virginia Moore invited me to come paint with her in Buena Vista this past week. We had a hoot and swam in the Maury River just behind her house (which is in a 100 year floor zone). I will show both paintings once they are finished.
Here is a painting I have been working on in the studio the last few weeks. I still have a little to do to it . . . but it is close. Will be taking this up to the Memorial Day weekend at Wintergreen in two weeks. 36" x 48" oil on canvas, framed SOLD thanks Rachel and Peter!
Today's adventure up on TJ's mountain at Monticello, Polly and I went painting and the weather was P E R F E C T ! Here is the edge of the gardens with Brown's Mountain in the back ground. We have pledged to ourselves to come up several times this year, and I even bought a year-long pass! 20" x 24" oil on canvas, framed, $450. SOLD
Several of us gathered at Chile's Peach Orchard on Sunday for live music, picking strawberries and of course plein-air painting! It was packed with families and fun . . . even though it was very overcast. I did two paintings and this being the first one, 12" x 12" oil on canvas framed, $175. Here are a few photos from our little town of Crozet with trees down all over. Here are a few photos from our little town of Crozet with trees down all over. SOLD
I had so much fun painting this last week and love the new barn that was just finished. The old one sadly burned down last year and this one is placed on a different angle. Congratulations to the owners and builders for doing such a fabulous job! I have been busy finishing it up . . . 24" x 48" oil on canvas, framed, SOLD
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.
