This was started last summer, and today was too cold to go outside so I decided to finish this painting in the studio. I was apart of a group of plein air painters for a weekend paint-out with the Nelson Gallery. Great memory of painting from under a big tree on top of a hill looking down. 12" x 36" oil on canvas, framed $450 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.
