This was a sweet place to set up and paint in Cataloochee in the Smoky Mountains National Park. My husband and I camped here for two nights then up to Balsam Mountain camp grounds for three nights. I did seven paintings while in the Smoky's along with several hikes, swimming in the creek and watching sunsets. This is called Messer's Barn and the stream in front was wonderful, wish I could have painted another just of the stream! 8" x 16" oil on canvas, framed $225, 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.
