I changed enough of this painting to decide to re-post it . . . Started this in March, but once a new season starts, you must
either work from memory or wait for the previous season to roll around
again. All the bales where gone by the second time!

I took an animal painting workshop this weekend with Nancy Bass @ Beverly Street Studio School in Staunton, and had a blast! Twelve students and we painted from photographs. I did a warm and cool painting of a deer, our neighbor's chicken, and a calf and a cow! (These are not quit done yet . . . ) I learned a lot, and will paint more animals when the weather turns bad this winter . . . check out Nancy's website http://nancybassartist.com/

Painted this about a month ago with Barbara, Chloe and Noaa on Maupin's property near Mount Moriah Methodist Church. I paint this field at least once a year and hope to get out again this fall. 24" x 48" oil on canvas, framed $1,250 SOLD Thanks Linda!
I have been wanting to paint this panoramic painting from this spot, long and thin, for a while. I have painted up here several times, but I stretched this canvas with the Blue Ridge Overlook in mind. I want to thank Julie and David for letting me stay the night before hand, so I could get two days of painting done. Will be taking this painting to the Wintergreen Labor Day Show next month. 18" x 60" oil on canvas, framed, $1,250 SOLDthanks Mark!
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.
