I didn't quite follow exactly what we were supposed to be painting but I'm not a big fan of dog wood trees. I like cherry trees though! I've been using acrylic (cheap acrylic really) for the last month. I'm aching to use some good paint!
Felt a bit odd when someone was talking about being only a math major. Didn't want to pull out the physics major card on them! Though I guess that's different because I do have an art degree too. :P
