Let’s get wild today. It’s beautiful – and we haven’t even done anything to it yet. With practice comes confidence. I guess I’m a little weird. I like to talk to trees and animals. That’s okay though; I have more fun than most people. You don’t want to kill all your dark areas they are very important.
If you don’t like it – change it. It’s your world. See there, told you that would be easy. Now then, let’s play. Each highlight must have it’s own private shadow. We want to use a lot pressure while using no pressure at all. Those great big fluffy clouds.
In your world you have total and absolute power. These little son of a guns hide in your brush and you just have to push them out. We wash our brush with odorless thinner. Imagination is the key to painting. Just use the old one inch brush.
We’ll do another happy little painting. Making all those little fluffies that live in the clouds. Now we don’t want him to get lonely, so we’ll give him a little friend. You can do anything here. So don’t worry about it.
Trees cover up a multitude of sins. Use what happens naturally, don’t fight it. Maybe there was an old trapper that lived out here and maybe one day he went to check his beaver traps, and maybe he fell into the river and drowned. That’s why I paint – because I can create the kind of world I want – and I can make this world as happy as I want it.
We don’t make mistakes we just have happy little accidents. And I will hypnotize that just a little bit. Let’s build some happy little clouds up here. And I know you’re saying, ‘Oh Bob, you’ve done it this time.’ And you may be right.
In painting, you have unlimited power. You have the ability to move mountains. You can bend rivers. But when I get home, the only thing I have power over is the garbage. You can get away with a lot. Take your time. Speed will come later. When you buy that first tube of paint it gives you an artist license.
Now we can begin working on lots of happy little things. Just pretend you are a whisper floating across a mountain. Be brave. Just go back and put one little more happy tree in there. If we’re gonna walk though the woods, we need a little path.
Let’s make some happy little clouds in our world. Anytime you learn something your time and energy are not wasted. Didn’t you know you had that much power? You can move mountains. You can do anything. How do you make a round circle with a square knife? That’s your challenge for the day.
Even trees need a friend. We all need friends. Let that brush dance around there and play. It’s so important to do something every day that will make you happy. There are no mistakes. You can fix anything that happens. Everyone wants to enjoy the good parts – but you have to build the framework first.
