Buck Hollow Overlook, Skyline Drive, Above Sperryville, VA
Painted this past weekend up in Sperryville with a dozen other plein air painters, with River District Arts Gallery. There will be a show there starting August 16 - October 12. Looking forward to seeing what everyone did, and will post my other paintings soon. It was great fun . . . and thanks to Donal and Elena for letting me stay at their farm house! Painting is 30" x 40" oil on canvas, framed $1,275.
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.
