Painted this with Chloe last Monday while it was warm and sunny. The Blue Ridge mountains in the distance, a field of soybeans and hay. Will take this tomorrow to hang @ C-ville Arts on the downtown mall in Charlottesville http://cvillearts.org/ 12" x 36" oil on canvas, framed $485
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.
