This was our last morning camping at Balsam Mountain and David was hiking the Flat Creek Trail. The next painting (that I will post) is similar and smaller and was painted after this one, looking farther north. 9" x 12" oil on canvas, I am giving this one to my husband since it was his birthday weekend : )
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.
