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. There's nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend. It's so important to do something every day that will make you happy. Be so very light. Be a gentle whisper. Don't be afraid to make these big decisions. Once you start, they sort of just make themselves. We'll put a happy little sky in here.

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 put some happy trees and bushes back in here. Be brave. If you didn't have baby clouds, you wouldn't have big clouds.

I will take some magic white, and a little bit of Vandyke brown and a little touch of yellow. With practice comes confidence. We'll throw some old gray clouds in here just sneaking around and having fun. It looks so good, I might as well not stop.

You can create the world you want to see and be a part of. You have that power. This is a fantastic little painting. This is truly an almighty mountain. Once you learn the technique, ohhh! Turn you loose on the world; you become a tiger. Very easy to work these to death.

Life is too short to be alone, too precious. Share it with a friend. We don't have to be concerned about it. We just have to let it fall where it will. Here's something that's fun. Anytime you learn something your time and energy are not wasted. You can do it.

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. A fan brush is a fantastic piece of equipment. Use it. Make friends with it. Those great big fluffy clouds. Fluff that up.

The light is your friend. Preserve it. When you do it your way you can go anywhere you choose. Exercising the imagination, experimenting with talents, being creative; these things, to me, are truly the windows to your soul. Let your imagination be your guide. We don't really know where this goes - and I'm not sure we really care. The more we do this - the more it will do good things to our heart.
