Crane

Crane by collage artist Megan Coyle

"Crane"
Collage on paper
16"x12"

This piece is currently hanging in the Goodwin exhibit. I enjoyed working on the background and creating a blend of abstract shapes and color as well as more defined objects like the shrubs. This crane turned out to be quite the character - he seems to be almost smiling.

Anyway, at the moment I'm working on drafting my children's book. Once the storyline is cleaned up and where I want it, I'll work on some sketches for the illustrations. It's quite an exciting process - I can't wait to get started on making some collage illustrations!

Hi Megan, Funny how your collages look so painterly! It's a stunning crane, and I see the almost-smile. I like the little surprises your collage pieces add, like the twigs in the lower left. Most fun!
