Missed The A Train (what happens at the terminal, stays at the terminal)

I had several inspirations for this piece. I always have done little doodles of people doing extraordinary things. I liked the idea of the dancers. One of the painters at does wonderful dancers. Connie Chadwell. I have also watched a lot of the paintings come in at DSFDF. Once I was satisfied with the dancers, I began looking for a scene for dancers.  The colorful concrete floor of the terminal seemed like an easily recognizable icon. When I saw what Karin Jurick called her painting "Terminal Pace" and thought about all those poor people rushing around trying to catch their rides, the idea of  "Terminal Dancing" seemed like a nice change of pace.   I think I have missed the submission date for DSFDF, so indeed, I have ("Missed the A Train").

Looks like George Bush!
Hope it's not a self portrait...

I guess it would mean most people would call me a jerk and it would baffled me why McCain picked Palin. Been There. Done That.
