This was my last of seven painting I did during my stay in Staunton, at the Queen City Plein Air Festival. It was wonderfully organized with 23 artists invited to participate. Beverly Street Studio School did an outstanding job, fed us, and found places for us to stay. Funny how my favorite painting was the last one, after the time to turn them in had past . . . 9" x 12" oil on canvas, framed, $225 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.
