This painting was done behind my house of my neighbors back field, in late October. I love how the bales sit with the light + shadows, they have been picked up by the farmer recently. 24" x 36" oil on canvas, framed $950. This painting will be saved for my show in January at the Connaughton Gallery at the UVA's McIntire School of Commerce. Opening date is Thursday, January 25, 4:30 to 6:30.
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.
