Nancy Pelosi

Nancy Pelosi by collage artist Megan Coyle

Collage on mat board

And here's the finished piece - as you can see it's much different than the first progress picture. When my client reviewed progress images of this one, she decided she wanted Nancy wearing a dark jacket instead of blue. She also made a few suggestions here and there. Her feedback was pretty helpful with shaping this into a Nancy portrait that looks more like Nancy.

I'm kind of excited about the idea of making a series of political leader collages, especially since I live in the DC area. We shall see how that goes when I get to it...

And now I'm off to work on my children's book illustrations as well as another portrait for a client. It's snowing like crazy outside - good weather for staying in and making artwork!

It looks just like her!

Oh wow! Wow! I thought the progress picture was great, but this is just incredible! She looks brighter and more energetic here. I really like the color changes. I certainly hope Ms. Pelosi gets to see your work. She'd be so impressed and thrilled.

Stay warm!

It is extremely interesting doing the comparison. The final certainly has more impact ... especially the darker suit.
