Spontaneous painting two evenings ago with Isabelle and Julia. This is the open field across from my house on Jarmans Gap Rd. The field had been let go and was gorgeous with the fall colors of ironweed, wingstem, and wild grasses. Funny thing is, they came THAT evening and cut it all down and are baling it today! We caught it just in time, that is the beauty of plein air painting. 16" x 40" oil on canvas, framed $800 SOLDthanks Gina!
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.
