The first two paintings in Lexington last Friday. Possum Hollow Barn, when it was very foggy in the morning, then it lifted . . . so hard to decide . . . do I change or stay with that view? The back mountain is very pale because of fog, the foreground is in the clear! 9-1/2" x 12-1/2" oil on panel, framed at http://nelson-gallery.com/
This was painted on Plank Road and is of Buffalo Creek, a quiet spot to pull over and paint. Also at Nelson Gallery in Lexington. Thanks to everyone for all your work pulling the show together!
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.
