Another scene inspired by one of my trips to NYC. I’ve enjoyed working on different angles of figures – by doing so, you can come up with some interesting narrative images. This was a piece that I revisited to edit and add more detail to it. Sometimes, when working on a collage, I can have a tough time getting into the piece. Although by setting it aside for a little bit of time, I can return to it later on with renewed energy and fresh eyes.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I somehow managed to hurt my foot the other day so I’m doing my best to rest up so I can move around like normal soon.

  1. this is great, I especially like how different the two blue coats look, despite the fact the colours are so similar!

    I’m a great believer in setting things aside and taking them up later, it really can help the inspiration!

  2. megan,
    these streets keep being filled
    with your gorgeous eyes on them & your collages continue to be amazing! LOVE the buildings’ colors/shapes here! of course love it all. xo

  3. Beatiful! Love the shades of gray in the street and blues in the clothing. Wish I was nearby so I could attend your show and see these close up.

    Hope your foot’s feeling better.
