My friend Jun Yamaguchi is a talented artist. Around Thanksgiving of 2013, he was hanging out with my family, working on a watercolor. I was bored, and cajoled him into giving me a quick lesson. Of course the painting I made sucked, no surprise there. But what did surprise me was the fact that I enjoyed it.
I don't consider myself a painter, or an artist, so maybe I was just surprised that when I put brush to paper, I ended up with something that looked vaguely like what I'd intended. I've stuck with it, and decided to post the progress I've made here.
