This was painted before dinner on Friday afternoon when I went down to see the river for the first time while being at Camp Mont Shenandoah for the artist retreat. The water was way up since it had been raining and the little beach where the tree in the foreground is, was barely visible. 8" x 10" oil on canvas, framed $145, 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.
