Just got back from the an artist retreat at Camp Mont Shenandoah on the Cowpasture River with about 20 other artists. Great folks, wonderful food and FUN time by all.

This is my interpretation of a river bank but eliminated some of the trees . . . 16" x 40" oil on canvas, framed, $665. SOLDthanks Mary!
I will re-photograph this image because it looks so dark, I took it when it was very overcast, . . . but running out the door to go to the Artist Retreat in Bath County on the Cowpasture River for the weekend. This was painted one late evening after dinner on Rt. 810 and is on Henley's Farm. Would love to paint a larger one there if they keep the bales on the field. 11" x 14" oil on canvas, framed SOLD
Last week several ladies and I went to King Family Vineyards and painted together there. This was our first time for meeting and we are hoping to get together a few times a month in different locations. This is a distant neighbor's barn but part of the King's pond, there is a road that can't be seen that separates them. 11" x 14" oil on canvas, framed, SOLD
Last night after dinner I went up to White Hall to see if the bales where in the field and got to paint till dark. I have been working on it all day and will tweak it a bit more later on. 24" x 46" oil on canvas, will be framed, $1,100 SOLD
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.
