Inspired by the work of artist Richard Tuttle, we were working on line drawings/paintings in watercolor class.  Our instructor brought in several items with great lines -- a birdcage still-life (which I took photos to try at home) and this free-form metal wire dog.  Two of us were fascinated by this wire sculpture and we had fun posing him/her in the lobby of the Art League.   It looked different from every angle.  And I liked how it cast a blue shadow.

I love this class, the people and the teacher! She pushes our boundaries, and the creativity and talent quotient of the room is airborne. I look forward to each class just to breathe it all in.
