Chronicle of an announced death

Decide where your cloud lives. Maybe he lives right in here. Isn’t that fantastic? You can just push a little tree out of your brush like that. That’s a crooked tree. We’ll send him to Washington.

Use what you see, don’t plan it. I thought today we would do a happy little picture. Follow the lay of the land. It’s most important. That’s crazy. Water’s like me. It’s laaazy … Boy, it always looks for the easiest way to do things Let’s go up in here, and start having some fun

You can do anything your heart can imagine. I really recommend you use odorless thinner or your spouse is gonna run you right out into the yard and you’ll be working by yourself. Automatically, all of these beautiful, beautiful things will happen.

Now we can begin working on lots of happy little things. We touch the canvas, the canvas takes what it wants. You are only limited by your imagination. A big strong tree needs big strong roots. Son of a gun. Put your feelings into it, your heart, it’s your world.

Be brave. Everything’s not great in life, but we can still find beauty in it. That easy. That’s what painting is all about. It should make you feel good when you paint. Work that paint. Fluff that up.

Let that brush dance around there and play. All kinds of happy little splashes. The very fact that you’re aware of suffering is enough reason to be overjoyed that you’re alive and can experience it.

Maybe we got a few little happy bushes here, just covered with snow. Learn when to stop. Let’s just drop a little Evergreen right here. You can create the world you want to see and be a part of. You have that power. I spend a lot of time walking around in the woods and talking to trees, and squirrels, and little rabbits and stuff. You can do anything here. So don’t worry about it.
