March is a fun time to paint because it is between seasons. The red tops of the maple trees are coming out and yet the grasses aren't greening up yet. It was a windy but warm afternoon. 24" x 36" oil on canvas, framed, SOLDthanks Barbara!
Painted this two days ago with my friend Chloe but I didn't have my camera with me, darn! The day started out cloudy but then cleared up and warmed up nicely. 11" x 14" oil on canvas, framed $225. SOLD
Painted this from a photo Julie sent me from their house up at Wintergreen Mountain a few weeks ago. I hope to go back up there this spring and paint plein air from the over looks. 24" x 48" oil on canvas, framed $1,225 SOLDThanks Beth!
Here is the painting I demonstrated for Red Hill Elementary School last Friday. Eileen French and I were ask to be part of a larger group that showed students different things they could learn about from bee keeping, fire fighting, to cooking, spinning wool or to painting. It was really fun! 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.
