Two friends and I got to go stay a few nights this week at my friend's home on Smith Mountain Lake. This is the view from their dock and was painted early in the morning. The lake is full of docks and houses dotted around, each with a different view. There is also a wonderful state park that we canoed over to, and next time I hope to go there to paint. 8" x 16" oil on canvas, framed $225.
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.
