Well, I am taking the 30 Day Challenge that has been posted by several other painters for the month of January . . . actually folks do it whenever they feel inspired to. For me, I haven't done it in a long time, so even if I don't get to post each day, I will be PAINTING each day (and hope to post daily). I still have visiting family for a few more days, that is my excuse . . . but I did paint this yesterday, and painted today as well. Some paintings will be studio work, some quick studies outside, and I am looking forward to seeing what this challenge brings!
This is a belated wedding gift, 'Neighbors Pond' 6" x 12" oil on canvas, framed.
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.
