Blue Rhino

Blue Rhino by collage artist Megan Coyle

"Blue Rhino"
Collage on paper

This piece was inspired by one of my visits to the Natural History Museum. I decided to make him a blue rhino because I've found that blue is just one of my favorite colors to use in collages. There are also so many different shades and textures of blue that you can find when flipping through magazines. I suppose I'm just drawn to the variety.

So things are still a little bit busy. I'm currently working away on a few landscape and cityscape pieces for an upcoming show. And goodness - time is just flying by. I can't believe it's mid-July - before long I'll be packing up the studio and leaving the art center. It's been a great two months. I've learned quite a bit from it all. And so we move on...

My crazy week of artist talks and lectures is over with. You can check out the Art League Gallery's blog post on my blog lecture from the other day. A few down, and many more to go. With each presentation, I learn quite a bit from what is working and what needs improvement. For the upcoming animal solo show, I'm doing another artist talk. Since I'll be talking about my source of inspiration for animal collages, it will be a little different than my recent talks.

Anyway, it's getting a tad bit late, so I should go off to bed soon. I hope everyone had a happy Monday!

Better a blue rhino than the dust covered grey that they really are.
