I sincerely wish for you every possible joy life could bring. This piece of canvas is your world. There’s nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend.
I thought today we would make a happy little stream that’s just running through the woods here. 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. Work on one thing at a time. Don’t get carried away – we have plenty of time. Maybe we got a few little happy bushes here, just covered with snow.
Just use the old one inch brush. I can’t think of anything more rewarding than being able to express yourself to others through painting. We can fix anything. Only eight colors that you need. Let your imagination be your guide. I spend a lot of time walking around in the woods and talking to trees, and squirrels, and little rabbits and stuff.
In painting, you have unlimited power. You have the ability to move mountains. Talent is a pursued interest. That is to say, anything you practice you can do. 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. Maybe there’s a happy little waterfall happening over here.
