You don’t have to be crazy to do this but it does help. Imagination is the key to painting. We don’t have anything but happy trees here. Painting should do one thing. It should put happiness in your heart. I’m a water fanatic. I love water.
How to paint. That’s easy. What to paint. That’s much harder. You can do anything your heart can imagine. No pressure. Just relax and watch it happen. 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.
Paint anything you want on the canvas. Create your own world. We touch the canvas, the canvas takes what it wants. These things happen automatically. All you have to do is just let them happen. In life you need colors.
Every highlight needs it’s own personal shadow. Volunteering your time; it pays you and your whole community fantastic dividends. In your world you have total and absolute power. So often we avoid running water, and running water is a lot of fun.
Now, we’re going to fluff this cloud. I sincerely wish for you every possible joy life could bring. Just make little strokes like that. We’ll put a happy little bush here. Everyone needs a friend. Friends are the most valuable things in the world. Trees live in your fan brush, but you have to scare them out.
This is the time to get out all your flustrations, much better than kicking the dog around the house or taking it out on your spouse. Be brave. Now we don’t want him to get lonely, so we’ll give him a little friend. I like to beat the brush. Van Dyke Brown is a very nice brown, it’s almost like a chocolate brown.
Anyone can paint. In nature, dead trees are just as normal as live trees. A happy cloud. Nature is so fantastic, enjoy it. Let it make you happy.
