Give him a friend, we forget the trees get lonely too. Talk to trees, look at the birds. Whatever it takes. We wash our brush with odorless thinner. I thought today we would do a happy little picture. Maybe there’s a little something happening right here. Don’t kill all your dark areas – you need them to show the light.

Here’s something that’s fun. We’ll throw some old gray clouds in here just sneaking around and having fun. Don’t fiddle with it all day. Only think about one thing at a time. Don’t get greedy.

You’re the greatest thing that has ever been or ever will be. You’re special. You’re so very special. Just a happy little shadow that lives in there. I’m a water fanatic. I love water. Everything is happy if you choose to make it that way. I will take some magic white, and a little bit of Vandyke brown and a little touch of yellow. Almost everything is going to happen for you automatically – you don’t have to spend any time working or worrying.

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. I like to beat the brush. You can create beautiful things – but you have to see them in your mind first. There is immense joy in just watching – watching all the little creatures in nature.

Isn’t that fantastic that you can create an almighty tree that fast? Imagination is the key to painting. It’s cold, but it’s beautiful. This present moment is perfect simply due to the fact you’re experiencing it. Get away from those little Christmas tree things we used to make in school. Little short strokes.

A happy cloud. You’re meant to have fun in life. There we are. The more we do this – the more it will do good things to our heart.

As trees get older they lose their chlorophyll. We don’t have to be concerned about it. We just have to let it fall where it will. Let’s put some highlights on these little trees. The sun wouldn’t forget them.
