You’ve got to learn to fight the temptation to resist these things. Just let them happen. Just pretend you are a whisper floating across a mountain. Zip. That easy. And maybe a little bush lives there. You need the dark in order to show the light. Now we don’t want him to get lonely, so we’ll give him a little friend.

If you don’t think every day is a good day – try missing a few. You’ll see. Let your heart take you to wherever you want to be. I’ll go over the colors one more time that we use: Titanium white, Thalo green, Prussian blue, Van Dyke brown, Alizarin crimson, Sap green, Cad yellow, and Permanent red. We’ll take a little bit of Van Dyke Brown. Pretend you’re water. Just floating without any effort. Having a good day.

Be so very light. Be a gentle whisper. Follow the lay of the land. It’s most important. I get carried away with this brush cleaning.

I was blessed with a very steady hand; and it comes in very handy when you’re doing these little delicate things. Nothing’s gonna make your husband or wife madder than coming home and having a snow-covered dinner. There he comes. If I paint something, I don’t want to have to explain what it is. This is a fantastic little painting.

Didn’t you know you had that much power? You can move mountains. You can do anything. See. We take the corner of the brush and let it play back-and-forth. In your world you can create anything you desire.

There comes a nice little fluffer. Trees grow in all kinds of ways. They’re not all perfectly straight. Not every limb is perfect. If you didn’t have baby clouds, you wouldn’t have big clouds. You can’t have light without dark. You can’t know happiness unless you’ve known sorrow. I think there’s an artist hidden in the bottom of every single one of us. All you have to learn here is how to have fun.

Maybe there’s a happy little Evergreen that lives here. All you need to paint is a few tools, a little instruction, and a vision in your mind. If you’ve been in Alaska less than a year you’re a Cheechako. I really believe that if you practice enough you could paint the ‘Mona Lisa’ with a two-inch brush. The first step to doing anything is to believe you can do it. See it finished in your mind before you ever start.
