Dear student,

Only eight colors that you need. What the devil. A fan brush can be your best friend. Let’s make some happy little clouds in our world. God gave you this gift of imagination. Use it. Let’s put some happy little bushes on the other side now. We must be quiet, soft and gentle.

From all of us here, I want to wish you happy painting and God bless, my friends. Van Dyke Brown is a very nice brown, it’s almost like a chocolate brown. Look around, look at what we have. Beauty is everywhere, you only have to look to see it. You can create anything that makes you happy. In your world you can create anything you desire. Trees grow in all kinds of ways. They’re not all perfectly straight. Not every limb is perfect. Isn’t it great to do something you can’t fail at? 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.

There are no limits in this world. I was blessed with a very steady hand; and it comes in very handy when you’re doing these little delicate things. We don’t need any guidelines or formats. All we need to do is just let it flow right out of us. All you need to paint is a few tools, a little instruction, and a vision in your mind. It all happens automatically. Anytime you learn something your time and energy are not wasted. Let’s have a little bit of fun today. When you do it your way you can go anywhere you choose.
