Different Strokes from Different Folks
Airport Travelers Challenge
'Traveling in a Pack' Oil 6 X 8
Whew! Barely got this done in time before the challenge finishes. When I saw Karin Juick's reference photograph for this challenge, it took me back to the days of traveling for my work with the federal government...rushing to get to the airport in time (and that was before 9/11), layovers, jet lag when traveling to the west coast. As we would be rushing through the airport to catch our flights, it always made me think of our group as being a pack of wolves...sticking together with the Alpha in the lead. So here's my interpretation of the DSFDF Challenge for Weeks 52- 54.
Just to let you know how serious I was about this challenge (and to give you a laugh), I actually went out and purchased miniature toy wolves so that I could approximate their body shape and color. Then I placed the toys on the floor and used my mini maglite in a dark room to shine down on the toys so that I could determine the shadow shape. A bit difficult holding the maglite in one hand, and sketching wolf shape and shadow shape with my other hand!
