Can you imagine 525 painters going together to one location to paint? Well, some by bus, some by car with lunch prepared for us when we arrived! Here is my painting from the day we spent there . . . I will re-photograph it soon . . . I only regret that I didn't have more time to wonder around and see everyone else work. 9" x 12" oil on treated paper., framed $200
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.
