This is a commission for a couple who live in Virginia but visit Glen Arbor in the summer time. They asked me to paint this scene once they heard I have relatives who live there and had painted Sleeping Bear Dunes a few summers ago. It was fun to take me back to this wonderful beach. Also a shout-out to my cousins Jandy and Ceci! 30" x 36" oil on canvas, framed $1,150. SOLD, Thanks Linda and Pete!
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.
