I'm not sure where I'm going with this, but I just wanted to show it off before I make it more "artsy". I'm sure my professors would have a field day with the "cuteness" of it. I must admit I wasn't pleased after the first few strokes of paint (I am not the most confident painter), but after some reassurance (i.e. a stern talking to) from one of the professors on my committee, I pressed on and I am proud of myself. I'm not sure what I'll add to it to push it further, but I'm sure it will work itself out.
