Had a ton of fun at the 'Lexington Paint Out' two weeks ago, and painted twelve paintings, some I am finishing up now. This one of House Mountain was painted from Susan Harb's second floor doorway, and her new studio and home! Thanks to everyone at the Nelson Gallery for hosting us, and a fabulous dinner and opening! 15" x 30" oil on canvas, framed $450.
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.
