This painting is for Paul and his family just south of Sperryville, Virginia in Rappahannock County. I was lucky to have a 60 degree day last week to go up and paint on location at their wonderful home. I still need to do a tad more . . . 24" x 36" oil on canvas, framed, thanks so much Paul!
We JUST got our power back on after 3 1/2 days! Very heavy snow and so many branches down, we spent a lot of time outside cleaning up. Snow almost all gone . . . we have a wood stove, gas cook stove and two 55 gallon barrels of water from the roof, so we managed OK! Didn't paint any but got about a dozen canvases stretched and ready to go! Painting up near Sperryville tomorrow for a commission! Suppose to be near 60 degrees!
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.
