A quick painting, done in an hour as a study on Blair Park Rd next to where I live. I am standing next to a gate but it doesn't block my view at all, but is in front of the canvas. I wanted to see what I could do in an hours time, before the sun went down behind the mountain. (When I took the photo on site, I had not finished the painting.) I went back over the painting . . . 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" oil on canvas, $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.
