Studio Update: Keeping Busy

Drinking Coffee All Summer Long by Megan Coyle
This image says it all - aside from working away on artwork all summer, I spent quite a bit of time drinking cups of coffee to stay awake and alert. I have a tendency of not sleeping very much, mainly because I'm a busy body - I always have something on my plate that I'd like to work on. And oddly enough, the less sleep I get, the more alert I feel in the morning, whereas the more sleep I get, the more tired I feel. Anyway, what were you up to this summer? Any traveling across the country/world? I just made a trek to North Carolina for a long weekend so I could install my artwork in the "Out of the Wild" exhibit. Other than that, my travels have been limited to wandering around DC.

Megan Coyle's Coffee Thoughts
My blog has been a bit quiet this year - I've been bogged down with work for Duck & Fish and recently I took on several commissioned projects. I'll post progress pictures of the commissioned pieces sometime in the future. I'm also going to take a few classes this year in graphic design and web design - I'm always eager to learn more about other creative outlets.

In other news, the "Out of the Wild" exhibit received a bit of press coverage from a local news station. Also, a writer from my college Elon University wrote an article on my work as an artist - "In The Spotlight: Megan Coyle '08."

Anyway, I'm off to get started on a commissioned dog portrait. I hope to post a progress picture or two somewhat soon.

I am SO happy you have been so busy, dear girl! Wow! I'm SO honored to know you.

We've had a busy summer too-blogging has had to take a back seat to many things--we travel a lot with our drama ministry, then there are all the things that must be done with an old old OLD house before winter.

I've done quite a bit of art--which has been a delight.

Just not much time to post anything!

Have a lovely weekend, my gifted Friend!

Where were you in NC? That's where I am. How much would I love to see your fabulous work in person!

The show is in Lexington, NC - at Davidson Community College. So it's about half an hour or so from Greensboro. Hope you're able to stop by :)
