The man who does the best job is the one who is happy at his job. Don’t hurry. Take your time and enjoy. Pretend you’re water. Just floating without any effort. Having a good day. The more we do this – the more it will do good things to our heart. This is probably the greatest thing that’s ever happened in my life. Just let go – and fall like a little waterfall.

Happy painting, God bless. It’s important to me that you’re happy. In your world you can create anything you desire. As trees get older they lose their chlorophyll.

Everybody’s different. Trees are different. Let them all be individuals. Even trees need a friend. We all need friends. Let’s make a happy little mountain now.

I’m a water fanatic. I love water. And just raise cain. When you buy that first tube of paint it gives you an artist license. We don’t have anything but happy trees here. Van Dyke Brown is a very nice brown, it’s almost like a chocolate brown. Use absolutely no pressure. Just like an angel’s wing.

La- da- da- da- dah. Just be happy. If these lines aren’t straight, your water’s going to run right out of your painting and get your floor wet. Maybe there’s a happy little waterfall happening over here. This is an example of what you can do with just a few things, a little imagination and a happy dream in your heart. I’m gonna start with a little Alizarin crimson and a touch of Prussian blue

We don’t make mistakes we just have happy little accidents. Let’s put a touch more of the magic here. Learn when to stop. If you’ve been in Alaska less than a year you’re a Cheechako. I was blessed with a very steady hand; and it comes in very handy when you’re doing these little delicate things. Now it’s beginning to make a little sense.

We don’t want to set these clouds on fire. We’ll make some happy little bushes here. Little trees and bushes grow however makes them happy. Everything’s not great in life, but we can still find beauty in it. 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.
