I painted on the Blue Ridge Parkway last week and had a great time, I went back a second time to finish it up. I like lining up the painting with the mountains . . . the proportions are never the same in a photograph as when you are outside with the view. The first day the sky was brighter, so I stuck to that. Will take this to Wintergreen for the Labor Day Show, 24" x 48" oil on canvas, framed, $1,250 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.
