Pelicans

Pelicans by collage artist Megan Coyle

Inspired by a walk through the National Zoo - these two pelicans were swimming about in the seal exhibit. Again you can see I'm drawn to the blues in water. There's just something that's really fun about working with reflections in water.

In other news, I was pretty excited today to receive my contract for my solo show at Krempp Gallery in May 2011. It's in Jasper, Indiana, although I'm planning to take a road trip when the time comes to deliver about twenty to thirty collages for the show. One of my goals this year was to get an exhibit in a gallery from a state that I'm not affiliated with at all and I'm pleased that my work will be off to the Midwest before long.

Anyway, I'm off to work on getting things a little more organized around my room. I'll be busy with quite a bit planning these next couple of weeks.

What a lovely collage, I love the movement in the water and the expression on the pelican's faces

Congrats on the show!

Our pelicans are white. They brown ones give you more colour to play with.
