We all went out to paint in the rain while at Paul Smith College, it was fun and challenging . . . 100 wet painters. Some more prepared than others, I fared pretty well, but next time I will take a longer thicker rain coat! I felt this painting was a bit of a break through, and enjoy remembering that day painting with the mist. 9" x 12" oil on board, framed NFS.
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.
