I was told once that if the sky is cloudy or gray, as a painter, it is always better to paint water since it has a reflective nature, you capture more light. I realized my last three of five paintings have to do with water, and it has been cold and gray out! This is from a photo from the James River this past summer, shown here with the frame that my husband makes. 8" x 8" oil on board, framed $125, SOLD
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.
