Here is the crowd of painters that came out in large flocks on Sunday morning to the Fisherman's Wharf, right near the Marriot Convention Center. We decided not to paint there but wondered around meeting some of the painters and enjoying the interactions. We then went off and painted in a bit quieter spot. It was an amazing weekend!
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.
