Claire by collage artist Megan Coyle

Collage on paper

"Claire" is a commissioned portrait that I recently completed and shipped over to a woman in Texas. I have a couple of other commissions at the moment that are going to be given as Christmas gifts by my clients. Thus I'll refrain from posting images of these projects until the holiday season has passed.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend. Mine was filled with family get-togethers and lots and lots of food. I didn't bother with shopping on Black Friday - I think I'll finish my shopping online so I can avoid the crowds. Anyway, I'm off to try and finish another commission - I've decided I won't work too much on my personal projects until these commission are complete, however I'm anxious to get back to my children's book illustrations.

Have a great end of November!

Megan, this is an incredible portrait! Wow, the shading is so subtle on her face. Beautiful! Gorgeous variations of color in her hair and clothes and chair, too. It's hard to believe this is a collage. And Ooh, look at the positioning of her fingers! Claire is going to LOVE this.

Beautiful critters down below, too. I love, love, love the tortoise shell with the touches of blue. Wow, you can really make out the dimensions on it.

Hope you have safe and fun travels!
