Tuj made an artist friend!!!
Tuj was taking a stroll and noticed an artist painting a picture of the Tower complete with glaring omissions like the cherry blossom trees. (Well, Tuj will draw the annual cherry blossom drawing this year too.) Thus Tuj approached him, talked with him and learned that he had made lots of friends through taking painting classes and by painting en plein air. Then Tuj made a friend as well and more amazingly it was an artist friend!!! Tuj is now more motivated to drawing.
