This is actually the painting I did on the first evening we were at the Carmel River Lagoon Nature Preserve. The houses are partly hidden into the hillside across from us. Susan discovered one day how to get over to that side while Carol and I where at the convention. Next time I will go there and paint looking BACK at the beach, oh yes, there will be a next time!
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.
