Calm Afternoons

Calm Afternoons by collage artist Megan Coyle

I've been pretty busy these past few days - August has been filled with trips to Charleston, SC as well as NYC. I'm still working away in the studio, working on a landscape/cityscape series that will be exhibited at the beginning of next year.

The piece that you see above was inspired by the National Mall in Washington, DC - which has nice park areas with trees and benches alongside walkways and bike paths. Every so often when I stroll around the National Mall, I'll notice the way the light hits the trees and the way shadows are cast. This piece was inspired by a series of photographs I took one summer day when the light was particularly bright and the grass and trees looked especially green.

There is something pleasing in the sharp lines in this one and the one below.
