That's what makes life fun. That you can make these decisions. That you can create the world that you want. I'm a water fanatic. I love water. It's so important to do something every day that will make you happy. Happy painting, God bless.

We'll put a happy little sky in here. We can always carry this a step further. There's really no end to this. There's nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend. There isn't a rule. You just practice and find out which way works best for you. The shadows are just like the highlights, but we're going in the opposite direction. If you've been in Alaska less than a year you're a Cheechako.

Trees live in your fan brush, but you have to scare them out. Life is too short to be alone, too precious. Share it with a friend. You can work and carry-on and put lots of little happy things in here.

Let's put some happy little bushes on the other side now. By now you should be quite happy about what's happening here. Just relax and let it flow. That easy. There are no limits in this world. Nice little clouds playing around in the sky. Only God can make a tree - but you can paint one.

We need a shadow side and a highlight side. Just think about these things in your mind - then bring them into your world. Let all these little things happen. Don't fight them. Learn to use them. And I know you're saying, 'Oh Bob, you've done it this time.' And you may be right. Only eight colors that you need. Now it's beginning to make a little sense.

You can bend rivers. But when I get home, the only thing I have power over is the garbage. Let's make some happy little clouds in our world. But they're very easily killed. Clouds are delicate. Don't fight it, use what happens. But we're not there yet, so we don't need to worry about it. Let all these things just sort of happen.

We'll make some happy little bushes here. And right there you got an almighty cloud. Put light against light - you have nothing. Put dark against dark - you have nothing. It's the contrast of light and dark that each give the other one meaning. With practice comes confidence.
