Funny, I needed a painting for a Spring Show @ McGuffey Art Center for April, but the blossoms aren't open yet . . . . So, I had to rely on a photo for this painting. Also, I will be in Florida when they DO bloom, but will be painting down there . . . Life is GOOD! 30" x 40" oil on canvas, framed $1,250 SOLDthanks Laura!
Perhaps I made the water too blue and will tone it back some, but I was amazed at how Fall-like the woods looked with all the leaves both on the beech trees and ground. This was last Saturday with five other ladies which I posted earlier . . . it had just stopped raining and the woods were so beautiful with the stream, then the sun came out for a bit! 12" x 12" oil on canvas, framed $250 SOLD
Six of us managed to have a get-away-weekend at Douthat State Park in Bath County last weekend to paint, share stories, food and wine. Thanks ladies, that was really fun! Will post these individually soon.
A few years ago a friend took myself and my husband up in his two-seater plane, first my husband, then me. It was great fun, and I took a few photos from this outing, and this is one of them. I am not sure where I was, but south of Charlottesville, VA. 36" x 48" oil on canvas, framed, $1,750, SOLDthanks Diane & Jason!
Hung this show last Monday @ Martha Jefferson Hospital on the first floor of the new building (not the out patient building). It will be there until the end of April, if you get a chance swing by and take a look, thanks!
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.
