Progress Picture #2: Penguin Feeding Time

Here's the next stage:

Penguin Feeding Time by collage artist Megan Coyle

You can see that I'm tackling the background first. Sometimes I prefer working this way--that way the background really is in the background and I can collage the foreground on top of it. Other times I work on the foreground and background at the same time, just switching back and forth as I put down the pieces of paper.

I'm getting really excited about my upcoming shows this spring/summer. There's just something about the whole process of getting ready that I really enjoy.

It's funny; at this point the caretaker looks kind of like an astronaut! i do love the background and the reflection in the water.
