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/
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.
