Another from my favorite spot on the parkway! This one I started a few weeks ago for a commission. I also went up again last week (and started another) with my friend Jenny, I am still working on that one. I am interested in how it is always changing and what I learn from painting a familiar location. They are each different but similar with the changing seasons! Thanks Kat & Patrick!
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.
