The newly renovated Mill in New Hampton in Highland County was painted last June during the Highland County Paint Out. I think this was my eighth time in a row at going, it was with six other lady painters and we stayed at South Branch Farm. 18" x 24" oil on canvas, framed $400.
Last fall I painted this from the cemetery @ Mount Moriah Methodist Church, looking north at Maupin's Farm, one of my favorite spots! It keeps drawing me back, big or small, it's fun to paint.
24" x 48" oil on canvas, framed $1,250, SOLD, thanks Martha!
Painted this near Floyd on the Blue Ridge Parkway when I was at a week-long Plein Air Paint Out in August. They even found a place for all the painters to stay! We all had a fabulous time. This is how the painting is framed with handmade Virginia grown cherry wood. 12" x 24" oil on canvas $300 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.
