You’ve got to learn to fight the temptation to resist these things. Just let them happen. Very easy to work these to death. Everything is happy if you choose to make it that way. We have a fantastic little sky! And that’s when it becomes fun – you don’t have to spend your time thinking about what’s happening – you just let it happen. It’s hard to see things when you’re too close. Take a step back and look. Every single thing in the world has its own personality – and it is up to you to make friends with the little rascals. That’s a son of a gun of a cloud. If I paint something, I don’t want to have to explain what it is.

Let’s make some happy little clouds in our world.

I guess that would be considered a UFO . A big cotton ball in the sky. Just make little strokes like that. Let’s put a touch more of the magic here. The more we do this – the more it will do good things to our heart. Just beat the devil out of it. Here’s something that’s fun. Let’s get wild today. Those great big fluffy clouds.

Happy little trees

Just pretend you are a whisper floating across a mountain.

The man who does the best job is the one who is happy at his job. And I will hypnotize that just a little bit. Now we don’t want him to get lonely, so we’ll give him a little friend. Isn’t it fantastic that you can change your mind and create all these happy things? It’s so important to do something every day that will make you happy.

A happy cloud. Of course he’s a happy little stone, cause we don’t have any other kind. Everyone is going to see things differently – and that’s the way it should be. This is the way you take out your flustrations. As trees get older they lose their chlorophyll.

For the lack of a better word I call them hangy downs. We have no limits to our world. We’re only limited by our imagination. That’s a crooked tree. We’ll send him to Washington. Automatically, all of these beautiful, beautiful things will happen. We need dark in order to show light. Use your imagination, let it go.

Everything’s not great in life, but we can still find beauty in it. Just a happy little shadow that lives in there. Let’s go up in here, and start having some fun It’s amazing what you can do with a little love in your heart. I was blessed with a very steady hand; and it comes in very handy when you’re doing these little delicate things.

It just happens – whether or not you worried about it or tried to plan it. I want everbody to be happy. That’s what it’s all about. Don’t hurry. Take your time and enjoy. When you buy that first tube of paint it gives you an artist license. Be careful. You can always add more – but you can’t take it away. Once you learn the technique, ohhh! Turn you loose on the world; you become a tiger.

All kinds of happy little splashes. What the devil. Let's put some happy trees and bushes back in here. I can't think of anything more rewarding than being able to express yourself to others through painting.

We tell people sometimes: we're like drug dealers, come into town and get everybody absolutely addicted to painting. It doesn't take much to get you addicted. We'll do another happy little painting. When you buy that first tube of paint it gives you an artist license. Here's something that's fun. You don't have to spend all your time thinking about what you're doing, you just let it happen. In this world, everything can be happy.

You're meant to have fun in life. A little happy sunlight shining through there. And just raise cain. Every time you practice, you learn more. Isn't that fantastic? You can just push a little tree out of your brush like that.

It's a very cold picture, I may have to go get my coat. It's about to freeze me to death. If there's two big trees invariably sooner or later there's gonna be a little tree. Don't kill all your dark areas - you need them to show the light. If you don't like it - change it. It's your world.

It's a super day, so why not make a beautiful sky? It looks so good, I might as well not stop. I thought today we would make a happy little stream that's just running through the woods here. Pretend you're water. Just floating without any effort. Having a good day. I really recommend you use odorless thinner or your spouse is gonna run you right out into the yard and you'll be working by yourself.

A happy cloud. Get away from those little Christmas tree things we used to make in school. Now, we're going to fluff this cloud. I guess that would be considered a UFO. A big cotton ball in the sky. Let your heart be your guide. We'll have a super time.

This is where you take out all your hostilities and frustrations. It's better than kicking the puppy dog around and all that so. Let's give him a friend too. Everybody needs a friend. In life you need colors. Now we don't want him to get lonely, so we'll give him a little friend.

Didn't you know you had that much power? You can move mountains. You can do anything. Brown is such a nice color. Just beat the devil out of it. We start with a vision in our heart, and we put it on canvas.

I really recommend you use odorless thinner or your spouse is gonna run you right out into the yard and you'll be working by yourself. Just use the old one inch brush. Let's make a happy little mountain now. La- da- da- da- dah. Just be happy. Get tough with it, get strong.

At home you have unlimited time. I'm gonna start with a little Alizarin crimson and a touch of Prussian blue Those great big fluffy clouds. And right there you got an almighty cloud. This piece of canvas is your world.

Don't hurry. Take your time and enjoy. I spend a lot of time walking around in the woods and talking to trees, and squirrels, and little rabbits and stuff. Do an almighty painting with us. Let the paint work.

Painting should do one thing. It should put happiness in your heart. We want to use a lot pressure while using no pressure at all. That's a son of a gun of a cloud.

Look around, look at what we have. Beauty is everywhere, you only have to look to see it. I can't think of anything more rewarding than being able to express yourself to others through painting. We can fix anything. There we go.

Don't forget to tell these special people in your life just how special they are to you. Almost everything is going to happen for you automatically - you don't have to spend any time working or worrying. The least little bit can do so much. It's amazing what you can do with a little love in your heart.

If you've been in Alaska less than a year you're a Cheechako. It's amazing what you can do with a little love in your heart. What the devil.

Just take out whatever you don't want. It'll change your entire perspective. There's not a thing in the world wrong with washing your brush. You have to allow the paint to break to make it beautiful. I really believe that if you practice enough you could paint the 'Mona Lisa' with a two-inch brush.

You need the dark in order to show the light. Everyone needs a friend. Friends are the most valuable things in the world. It just happens - whether or not you worried about it or tried to plan it. This present moment is perfect simply due to the fact you're experiencing it. Let all these things just sort of happen. That is when you can experience true joy, when you have no fear.

Remember how free clouds are. They just lay around in the sky all day long. The man who does the best job is the one who is happy at his job. Life is too short to be alone, too precious. Share it with a friend. With practice comes confidence.

Have fun with it. Let's make some happy little clouds in our world. That's a son of a gun of a cloud.

If what you're doing doesn't make you happy - you're doing the wrong thing. Nothing's gonna make your husband or wife madder than coming home and having a snow-covered dinner. Son of a gun. Very easy to work these to death.

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. Let's go up in here, and start having some fun The more we do this - the more it will do good things to our heart. Just pretend you are a whisper floating across a mountain. A tree cannot be straight if it has a crooked trunk.

You can create the world you want to see and be a part of. You have that power. Get tough with it, get strong. It's a super day, so why not make a beautiful sky? I'll go over the colors one more time that we use: Titanium white, Thalo green, Prussian blue, Van Dyke brown, Alizarin crimson, Sap green, Cad yellow, and Permanent red. These little son of a guns hide in your brush and you just have to push them out.

If I paint something, I don't want to have to explain what it is. Put your feelings into it, your heart, it's your world. A happy cloud. We wash our brush with odorless thinner. Nature is so fantastic, enjoy it. Let it make you happy.

Imagination is the key to painting. If there's two big trees invariably sooner or later there's gonna be a little tree. The only prerequisite is that it makes you happy. If it makes you happy then it's good.

Steve wants reflections, so let's give him reflections. There it is. But they're very easily killed. Clouds are delicate. How do you make a round circle with a square knife? That's your challenge for the day. We'll take a little bit of Van Dyke Brown. Pretend you're water. Just floating without any effort. Having a good day.

Just let your mind wander and enjoy. This should make you happy. You can do anything your heart can imagine. Work on one thing at a time. Don't get carried away - we have plenty of time. Just beat the devil out of it.

Let's put some highlights on these little trees. The sun wouldn't forget them. You don't have to be crazy to do this but it does help. We don't really know where this goes - and I'm not sure we really care. Isn't it fantastic that you can change your mind and create all these happy things? Decide where your cloud lives. Maybe he lives right in here. Exercising the imagination, experimenting with talents, being creative; these things, to me, are truly the windows to your soul.

Don't kill all your dark areas - you need them to show the light. We have no limits to our world. We're only limited by our imagination. Let that brush dance around there and play. Each highlight must have it's own private shadow. Only God can make a tree - but you can paint one. That's a crooked tree. We'll send him to Washington.

Just a happy little shadow that lives in there. I'm gonna start with a little Alizarin crimson and a touch of Prussian blue We spend so much of our life looking - but never seeing. We can fix anything.

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. It's a good way of getting rid of all your anxieties and hostilities. So often we avoid running water, and running water is a lot of fun. Let your imagination be your guide.

And I know you're saying, 'Oh Bob, you've done it this time.' And you may be right. You can work and carry-on and put lots of little happy things in here. This is where you take out all your hostilities and frustrations. It's better than kicking the puppy dog around and all that so. In your world you can create anything you desire. Don't fiddle with it all day.

It's important to me that you're happy. You better get your coat out, this is going to be a cold painting. I really recommend you use odorless thinner or your spouse is gonna run you right out into the yard and you'll be working by yourself. Take your time. Speed will come later. This is probably the greatest thing to happen in my life - to be able to share this with you.

I get carried away with this brush cleaning. We need dark in order to show light. In nature, dead trees are just as normal as live trees.

A thin paint will stick to a thick paint. When you do it your way you can go anywhere you choose. This is truly an almighty mountain. Little trees and bushes grow however makes them happy. This piece of canvas is your world. Just make a decision and let it go.

See there how easy that is. There it is. A little happy sunlight shining through there. You're the greatest thing that has ever been or ever will be. You're special. You're so very special. The least little bit can do so much.

You could sit here for weeks with your one hair brush trying to do that - or you could do it with one stroke with an almighty brush. Now let's put some happy little clouds in here. I can't think of anything more rewarding than being able to express yourself to others through painting.

Talent is a pursued interest. That is to say, anything you practice you can do. God gave you this gift of imagination. Use it. That's a son of a gun of a cloud.

The only thing worse than yellow snow is green snow. It's a good way of getting rid of all your anxieties and hostilities. Let's put a touch more of the magic here.

Get tough with it, get strong. Let's build some happy little clouds up here. Let's go up in here, and start having some fun They say everything looks better with odd numbers of things. But sometimes I put even numbers—just to upset the critics. This is your creation - and it's just as unique and special as you are. The only prerequisite is that it makes you happy. If it makes you happy then it's good.

Take your time. Speed will come later. Automatically, all of these beautiful, beautiful things will happen. La- da- da- da- dah. Just be happy. But we're not there yet, so we don't need to worry about it.

I thought today we would make a happy little stream that's just running through the woods here. Learn when to stop. This is the fun part

Even the worst thing we can do here is good. I'm gonna start with a little Alizarin crimson and a touch of Prussian blue With something so strong, a little bit can go a long way. The light is your friend. Preserve it.

We can always carry this a step further. There's really no end to this. All you need to paint is a few tools, a little instruction, and a vision in your mind. Only God can make a tree - but you can paint one. Let's get crazy.

We have all at one time or another mixed some mud. Just make little strokes like that. You don't have to spend all your time thinking about what you're doing, you just let it happen.

It's a super day, so why not make a beautiful sky? We might as well make some Almighty mountains today as well, what the heck. I will take some magic white, and a little bit of Vandyke brown and a little touch of yellow. See there, told you that would be easy.

We don't really know where this goes - and I'm not sure we really care. Use absolutely no pressure. Just like an angel's wing. Van Dyke Brown is a very nice brown, it's almost like a chocolate brown.

This is where you take out all your hostilities and frustrations. It's better than kicking the puppy dog around and all that so. We can fix anything. There are no limits in this world.

How to paint. That's easy. What to paint. That's much harder. Mix your color marbly don't mix it dead. Maybe there's a happy little bush that lives right there.

We'll put all the little clouds in and let them dance around and have fun. We'll throw some old gray clouds in here just sneaking around and having fun. This piece of canvas is your world.

Just a happy little shadow that lives in there. Be so very light. Be a gentle whisper. Just let this happen. We just let this flow right out of our minds. There isn't a rule. You just practice and find out which way works best for you.

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. If you overwork it you become a cloud killer. There's nothing worse than a cloud killer. Isn't that fantastic that you can create an almighty tree that fast? Nothing's gonna make your husband or wife madder than coming home and having a snow-covered dinner.

Don't be afraid to make these big decisions. Once you start, they sort of just make themselves. I guess that would be considered a UFO. A big cotton ball in the sky. In your world you have total and absolute power. Follow the lay of the land. It's most important. If these lines aren't straight, your water's going to run right out of your painting and get your floor wet.

Don't be bashful drop me a line. We start with a vision in our heart, and we put it on canvas. Use what you see, don't plan it.

It's important to me that you're happy. There we go. A fan brush is a fantastic piece of equipment. Use it. Make friends with it. Put it in, leave it alone.

We'll put all the little clouds in and let them dance around and have fun. I get carried away with this brush cleaning. There we go. When you buy that first tube of paint it gives you an artist license. This is gonna be a happy little seascape.

Don't forget to tell these special people in your life just how special they are to you. The more we do this - the more it will do good things to our heart. The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe. Volunteering your time; it pays you and your whole community fantastic dividends. Every single thing in the world has its own personality - and it is up to you to make friends with the little rascals. Nature is so fantastic, enjoy it. Let it make you happy.

Talent is a pursued interest. That is to say, anything you practice you can do. This is where you take out all your hostilities and frustrations.

We might as well make some Almighty mountains today as well, what the heck. See how easy it is to create a little tree right in your world. We'll do another happy little painting. You can get away with a lot. The very fact that you're aware of suffering is enough reason to be overjoyed that you're alive and can experience it. A little happy sunlight shining through there.

That's a son of a gun of a cloud. We'll play with clouds today. It's cold, but it's beautiful.

You have to allow the paint to break to make it beautiful. I sincerely wish for you every possible joy life could bring.

Don't fiddle with it all day. All you have to do is let your imagination go wild. If you don't like it - change it. It's your world. A thin paint will stick to a thick paint. Take your time. Speed will come later.

And that's when it becomes fun - you don't have to spend your time thinking about what's happening - you just let it happen. We spend so much of our life looking - but never seeing.

Isn't that fantastic that you can create an almighty tree that fast? Just take out whatever you don't want. It'll change your entire perspective.

We tell people sometimes: we're like drug dealers, come into town and get everybody absolutely addicted to painting. It doesn't take much to get you addicted. Be brave. Life is too short to be alone, too precious. Share it with a friend.

What the devil. I can't think of anything more rewarding than being able to express yourself to others through painting. Automatically, all of these beautiful, beautiful things will happen.

All you have to do is just let them happen. La- da- da- da- dah. Just be happy. The little tiny Tim easels will let you down.

Nothing wrong with washing your brush. Everyone wants to enjoy the good parts - but you have to build the framework first. The least little bit can do so much. God gave you this gift of imagination. Use it. I started painting as a hobby when I was little. I didn't know I had any talent. I believe talent is just a pursued interest. Anybody can do what I do.

Nice little fluffy clouds laying around in the sky being lazy. Just think about these things in your mind - then bring them into your world. You can't have light without dark. You can't know happiness unless you've known sorrow.

We don't really know where this goes - and I'm not sure we really care. I'm sort of a softy, I couldn't shoot Bambi except with a camera. The man who does the best job is the one who is happy at his job.

Just go out and talk to a tree. Make friends with it. Don't be afraid to make these big decisions. Once you start, they sort of just make themselves. 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. In this world, everything can be happy. Each highlight must have it's own private shadow.

Let's make a nice big leafy tree. Now then, let's play. Those great big fluffy clouds.

Isn't that fantastic that you can create an almighty tree that fast? Here's something that's fun. Maybe there's a happy little bush that lives right there. We'll take a little bit of Van Dyke Brown. Let's make a happy little mountain now.

Nothing's gonna make your husband or wife madder than coming home and having a snow-covered dinner. Let your heart be your guide. Water's like me. It's laaazy ... Boy, it always looks for the easiest way to do things

There is immense joy in just watching - watching all the little creatures in nature. For the lack of a better word I call them hangy downs. We have all at one time or another mixed some mud. 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. We don't make mistakes we just have happy little accidents.

It is a lot of fun. The little tiny Tim easels will let you down. The man who does the best job is the one who is happy at his job. Let's make some happy little clouds in our world. Painting should do one thing. It should put happiness in your heart.

If you've been in Alaska less than a year you're a Cheechako. We might as well make some Almighty mountains today as well, what the heck. Son of a gun. And right there you got an almighty cloud. Don't kill all your dark areas - you need them to show the light. It's amazing what you can do with a little love in your heart.

You can do anything your heart can imagine. Isn't that fantastic that you can create an almighty tree that fast? That's the way I look when I get home late; black and blue. The shadows are just like the highlights, but we're going in the opposite direction.

It just happens - whether or not you worried about it or tried to plan it. Work that paint. Son of a gun. You can create beautiful things - but you have to see them in your mind first. If it's not what you want - stop and change it. Don't just keep going and expect it will get better.

Life is too short to be alone, too precious. Share it with a friend. Now we'll take the almighty fan brush. 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. The first step to doing anything is to believe you can do it. See it finished in your mind before you ever start. I guess that would be considered a UFO. A big cotton ball in the sky. If there's two big trees invariably sooner or later there's gonna be a little tree.

We can always carry this a step further. There's really no end to this. I'm gonna start with a little Alizarin crimson and a touch of Prussian blue Every highlight needs it's own personal shadow. This painting comes right out of your heart.

Don't be bashful drop me a line. Even trees need a friend. We all need friends. Mix your color marbly don't mix it dead. Every time you practice, you learn more.

You can create the world you want to see and be a part of. You have that power. We start with a vision in our heart, and we put it on canvas. Happy painting, God bless. It's a good way of getting rid of all your anxieties and hostilities. Use absolutely no pressure. Just like an angel's wing.

For the lack of a better word I call them hangy downs. The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe. Every single thing in the world has its own personality - and it is up to you to make friends with the little rascals. I'm going to mix up a little color. We'll use Van Dyke Brown, Permanent Red, and a little bit of Prussian Blue. Only God can make a tree - but you can paint one. There are no mistakes. You can fix anything that happens.

All kinds of happy little splashes. Follow the lay of the land. It's most important. Here we're limited by the time we have.

Be so very light. Be a gentle whisper. We spend so much of our life looking - but never seeing. Now let's put some happy little clouds in here. Just think about these things in your mind and drop em' on canvas. In nature, dead trees are just as normal as live trees.

Let all these things just sort of happen. Let's put some happy little clouds in our world. Trees cover up a multitude of sins.

In life you need colors. Steve wants reflections, so let's give him reflections. This is your world, whatever makes you happy you can put in it. Go crazy.

It is a lot of fun. This is an example of what you can do with just a few things, a little imagination and a happy dream in your heart. Pretend you're water. Just floating without any effort. Having a good day. Be brave.

Let's have a little bit of fun today. That's what painting is all about. It should make you feel good when you paint. All you have to do is let your imagination go wild. There isn't a rule. You just practice and find out which way works best for you. You're meant to have fun in life.

A little happy sunlight shining through there. See how easy it is to create a little tree right in your world. Don't forget to tell these special people in your life just how special they are to you. I sincerely wish for you every possible joy life could bring. Let's build an almighty mountain.

Let's do that again. Let all these little things happen. Don't fight them. Learn to use them. Don't be afraid to make these big decisions. Once you start, they sort of just make themselves. You got your heavy coat out yet? It's getting colder.

That's crazy. That's a son of a gun of a cloud. I'm sort of a softy, I couldn't shoot Bambi except with a camera. That's a crooked tree. We'll send him to Washington. We don't really know where this goes - and I'm not sure we really care.

Even the worst thing we can do here is good. See there how easy that is. We tell people sometimes: we're like drug dealers, come into town and get everybody absolutely addicted to painting. It doesn't take much to get you addicted.

And just raise cain. Here's something that's fun. Let's give him a friend too. Everybody needs a friend. Tree trunks grow however makes them happy.

Anytime you learn something your time and energy are not wasted. Isn't that fantastic? You have to make almighty decisions when you're the creator.

We don't want to set these clouds on fire. This is a happy place, little squirrels live here and play. Maybe we got a few little happy bushes here, just covered with snow.

I really believe that if you practice enough you could paint the 'Mona Lisa' with a two-inch brush. Clouds are free. They just float around the sky all day and have fun. If we're going to have animals around we all have to be concerned about them and take care of them.

Making all those little fluffies that live in the clouds. Put it in, leave it alone. Just think about these things in your mind - then bring them into your world. It's so important to do something every day that will make you happy.

Let's get crazy. But they're very easily killed. Clouds are delicate. You have to make these big decisions. Imagination is the key to painting. Just let go - and fall like a little waterfall.

Everyone wants to enjoy the good parts - but you have to build the framework first. This is unplanned it really just happens. Decide where your cloud lives. Maybe he lives right in here. This is the fun part Learn when to stop. Just relax and let it flow. That easy.

We need dark in order to show light. If you don't like it - change it. It's your world. Maybe there's a happy little Evergreen that lives here. Any little thing can be your friend if you let it be.

If you hypnotize it, it will go away. Isn't it fantastic that you can change your mind and create all these happy things? Only think about one thing at a time. Don't get greedy. Now, we're going to fluff this cloud. Let your heart take you to wherever you want to be. Trees grow in all kinds of ways. They're not all perfectly straight. Not every limb is perfect.

You're the greatest thing that has ever been or ever will be. You're special. You're so very special. Automatically, all of these beautiful, beautiful things will happen. I'll go over the colors one more time that we use: Titanium white, Thalo green, Prussian blue, Van Dyke brown, Alizarin crimson, Sap green, Cad yellow, and Permanent red. Let the paint work. If you don't think every day is a good day - try missing a few. You'll see.

A fan brush is a fantastic piece of equipment. Use it. Make friends with it. Remember how free clouds are. They just lay around in the sky all day long. How to paint. That's easy. What to paint. That's much harder. This is truly an almighty mountain.

I get carried away with this brush cleaning. You can do anything here - the only pre-requisite is that it makes you happy. There comes a nice little fluffer. It's amazing what you can do with a little love in your heart. 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.

No pressure. Just relax and watch it happen. Every day I learn. And right there you got an almighty cloud. Let's get wild today.

You can get away with a lot. We artists are a different breed of people. We're a happy bunch. Don't kill all your dark areas - you need them to show the light.

Let's make some happy little clouds in our world. There is no right or wrong - as long as it makes you happy and doesn't hurt anyone. Let that brush dance around there and play. Little trees and bushes grow however makes them happy. It's beautiful - and we haven't even done anything to it yet. And that's when it becomes fun - you don't have to spend your time thinking about what's happening - you just let it happen.

Nice little clouds playing around in the sky. This present moment is perfect simply due to the fact you're experiencing it. If you do too much it's going to lose its effectiveness. Let's make a happy little mountain now.

We'll lay all these little funky little things in there. Just beat the devil out of it. This is gonna be a happy little seascape.

Everybody needs a friend. Didn't you know you had that much power? You can move mountains. You can do anything. Talent is a pursued interest. That is to say, anything you practice you can do.

We'll put all the little clouds in and let them dance around and have fun. I was blessed with a very steady hand; and it comes in very handy when you're doing these little delicate things. I'm a water fanatic. I love water. It's cold, but it's beautiful. This is where you take out all your hostilities and frustrations. It's better than kicking the puppy dog around and all that so.

I like to beat the brush. Those great big fluffy clouds. It's almost like something out of a fairytale book.

Now we can begin working on lots of happy little things. We don't have anything but happy trees here. You better get your coat out, this is going to be a cold painting. We'll throw some old gray clouds in here just sneaking around and having fun. Get away from those little Christmas tree things we used to make in school.

You can do anything here. So don't worry about it. Use what happens naturally, don't fight it. Let's put some highlights on these little trees. The sun wouldn't forget them. 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.

We wash our brush with odorless thinner. Let's put some happy little bushes on the other side now. Let your imagination be your guide.

We might as well make some Almighty mountains today as well, what the heck. Let's have a happy little tree in here. The man who does the best job is the one who is happy at his job. Once you learn the technique, ohhh! Turn you loose on the world; you become a tiger. A tree cannot be straight if it has a crooked trunk. The very fact that you're aware of suffering is enough reason to be overjoyed that you're alive and can experience it.

Be careful. You can always add more - but you can't take it away. You need the dark in order to show the light. And I will hypnotize that just a little bit.

Nothing wrong with washing your brush. We have all at one time or another mixed some mud. The little tiny Tim easels will let you down. All you have to learn here is how to have fun.

We must be quiet, soft and gentle. Everything's not great in life, but we can still find beauty in it. Just go back and put one little more happy tree in there. You can't make a mistake. Anything that happens you can learn to use - and make something beautiful out of it. You gotta think like a tree.

It looks so good, I might as well not stop. Trees live in your fan brush, but you have to scare them out. If we're gonna walk though the woods, we need a little path. Just use the old one inch brush. We'll put some happy little leaves here and there.

You don't have to be crazy to do this but it does help. From all of us here, I want to wish you happy painting and God bless, my friends. We'll take a little bit of Van Dyke Brown. We're trying to teach you a technique here and how to use it. Let's go up in here, and start having some fun

How do you make a round circle with a square knife? That's your challenge for the day. In this world, everything can be happy. This piece of canvas is your world. You can't have light without dark. You can't know happiness unless you've known sorrow. This is your creation - and it's just as unique and special as you are. Fluff it up a little and hypnotize it.

So often we avoid running water, and running water is a lot of fun. Trees get lonely too, so we'll give him a little friend. Let's make some happy little clouds in our world. Exercising the imagination, experimenting with talents, being creative; these things, to me, are truly the windows to your soul.

The more we do this - the more it will do good things to our heart. Don't fiddle with it all day. Use your imagination, let it go. Don't fight it, use what happens.

Everybody's different. Trees are different. Let them all be individuals. That is when you can experience true joy, when you have no fear. I thought today we would do a happy little picture.
