Sketchbook Challenge : Ordinary Objects
Piper Cub at Sunset
The original was done in gouache watercolors on some heavy watercolor paper (What a difference that makes!). I'm going to give the original to my best buddy J (Shhh! Don't tell her ...) since this is a silhouette of her plane, a Piper Cub.
This summer, she flew across the country, from Rhode Island to Idaho, to start her dream job as a wildlife biologist, tracking animals with radio collars (among many other things). She did stop to see me in WI. ;-)
Although seeing one of these little planes, and even flying in one, is a rare treat for most of us, this is an everyday thing for her. See how I'm shoe-horning it into the August Sketchbook Challenge theme : Everyday Objects?
