The Bikers

The Bikers by collage artist Megan Coyle

"The Bikers"
18"x24"
Collage on paper

I finished this piece a few weeks ago but just got around to taking pictures and uploading them to my computer. I'm done with it at the moment - but I'd like to go back in and rework a few areas so it will be ready for the show next month. It was inspired by a trip to New York, when I spent the day at Coney Island.

The weather has been like summer here - I'm not sure what happened to spring. Is it just me, or does spring only last for a couple of days now? Anyway, I prefer the warm weather, but I'm awaiting our building to turn on the air conditioning with baited breath.

And I'm beginning to toy with a few ideas of things to do on my blog. Below you can see the result of one of my projects - Bosty the Boston Terrier. I'm going to post photographs from time to time with Bosty walking in on them.

Lastly, I was really excited because I found out today that I was selected to become a visiting artist at the Torpedo Factory in Old Town, Alexandria. The Torpedo Factory is an art center filled with open artist studios and galleries. As a visiting artist, I'll share a studio with one of the resident artists for a couple of months - June and July. I'm looking forward to it all - man oh man, will I be busy this summer.

That's all for now - I hope everyone has a happy Friday and a fantastic weekend!
