My husband David and I like to go to Florida in early April and visit family, go hiking, birding and painting! Our second time staying at Cedar Keys for 4 days, and I am already planning on going back next April. We had perfect weather and a wonderful trip. We would get up, have coffee and go out early, he would bird, and I would paint . . . so this is 7:30 AM looking out from the cemetery park. Then we go back and have a big breakfast! I will post more paintings soon from this trip.
4" x 12" oil on canvas SOLD
This site for a National Wildlife Refuge headquarters in Edisto, SC is amazing. Even though there was this plantation house I could have painted instead, I liked this smaller structure that might have been the kitchen. If I had turned around, this is what I saw . . . perhaps sometime I will try to paint it too.
When I arrived, there where two ladies set up who where painting, yes, I just jumped in too, while David hiked around.
I did 13 little paintings on the Florida and South Carolina trip, will post them soon. Above painting is 8" x 10" oil on board, framed, $150
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.
