Bear Mountain is West of Monterey, near the West Virginia line. This is up high looking east towards the Allegheny Mountains. I went with a group of ladies for the Highland Paint Out, and think this is my ninth year in a row of going. We all love the unusual rolling hillsides with sheep out numbering people. 12" x 24" oil on canvas, framed $300 SOLD
Painted this as a demo during a show in Crozet this spring. Image is from a postcard saying a view of Skyline Drive and Hughes River Gap from Little Stony Man. 9" x 12" oil on canvas, framed, $200. 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.
