Painted this from Skyline Drive this summer looking toward Shenandoah Valley. I love how the hillside feeds into the flat lands. 15" x 30" oil on canvas, framed in cherry, $450. You can see this painting at C-Ville Arts on Charlottesville's downtown mall.
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.
