Painted this Plein air with a friend at Foxhaven, Jane Heywood's garden, which is part of UVA. These are known as resurrection lilies or spider lilies. This painting is 24" x 24" oil on canvas, framed, $650. I am saving it for a large show at the McIntire School of Commerce, UVA in January. I am saving many paintings for that show, and will not be at the Crozet Festival this weekend because of it. More information to come on this show!
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.
