Just painted this in the last few days, it was sunny but very windy and had to 'hold down' the canvas! The colors are not quite right in this photo so I will try to re-post later. Really fun to get out after driving by this so many times . . . 24" x 48" oil on canvas, framed $1,225, SOLDThanks Beth!
Painted with five ladies from our painting group on Saturday and the weather was warm and breezy, had to take off a few layers by the end. I am looking at the barns at The Shenandoah Valley Agricultural Research and Extension Center, which is across the road from McCormick. Love those barns! 12" x 24" oil on canvas, framed $300. SOLD, thanks Eric!
Here we are taking a break, Elizabeth, Barbara, Jean Marie, Jenny and Susan . . . thanks ladies!
Painted this two days ago behind my house, can you find my neighbor's home? It was great to get out in the snow and hope to each day this week before it all melts. I have been absent from painting because of a shoulder injury, but much better now with thanks from my PT person, Tina! 8-1/2" x 28-1/2" oil on board, in silver metal frame, $200, SOLDThanks Connie!
Painted this fall on Pony Express Road in Greenwood and finished in the studio recently. (I have a new photo program called Pixelmator and haven't figured out how to lighten a painting yet, which this one needs.) What a great area to paint year round! 24" x 48" oil on canvas, framed $1,225 SOLD, thanks George and Mary!
A painting I did a few years ago that I have gone back and beefed up a bit of the colors, I felt it needed it. I love this barn which is near Mint Springs Park in Crozet, just down the road from me. I painted it with two friends at the time in the spring . . . 16" x 20" oil on board, framed $375, SOLDThanks Holly!
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.
