Painted this summer from a painting I had done a few years ago plus a photograph I took of the garden. This was too big to paint on location! 36" x 36" oil on canvas, framed $1,800. Showing now at UVA McIntire School of Commerce, The Connaughton Gallery, until March 5.
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.
