Wanting to paint a few barns, I found this spot below Mountain Lake on Rt 700, and met a few of the Porterfield family who came over to see what I was up to. I changed it a bit by straightened the foreground barn but all-in-all, happy with how it turned out. 12" x 24" oil on canvas, framed $300. 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.
