Flamingo Dancers


"Flamingo Dancers"
Collage on paper
12"x16"

I was going to stick with the title "Flamingos" but then I thought I should start changing these titles up a bit. Flamingos always remind me of ballerinas for some reason. I think it's their pink feathers and how they perch on one leg like the flamingo in the center.

Anyway, things are still pretty busy. I just finished putting together a bunch of handmade magnets to sell at the studio (they've been pretty popular - especially with tourists). And I'm continuing to work on a series of animal collages. I recently took pictures of several finished collages, which I'll later post. In July I'm planning on working on landscape pieces for another upcoming exhibition. And hopefully, sometime soon, I can begin work on a short animation. I have so many ideas at the moment, and there are so many possibilities of projects I can work on - sometimes it's hard to acknowledge the fact I'm not wonder woman and can't do everything all at once.

your flamingo dancers are fabulous, megan!! and i really enjoyed seeing your process of how you go about creating these pieces! i think that it takes a true artist's eye to put them together as beautifully as you do, though!!! :)))

I love the colour and the way it is reflected in the water.

These colours are beautiful, really jewel like. Can't wait to see how the toucan progresses.
