His voice and calm way about him would capture my attention. I wondered how he makes it look so easy and why is he so happy and nice saying things like, "let's build us a happy little cloud that floats around the sky." Of course when something looks that easy, I have to try it and his "happy little cloud" would turn into a thunderstorm of mud on my painting. Not a thing happy about it.
Last year I dabbled in watercolors and one of my goals this year is to paint with something other than that. I don't know if I can count these paints as "other than watercolors", but I just might! So, goal completed!
Sometimes it's nice to do an activity to turn off your brain for a while and not think about anything but what you are doing at the moment. Turning my brain off is a bit of a challenge for me so when I was at the art store the other day, I thought perhaps Bob Ross could help me do just that. Don't let the "for kids" on the box fool you, this is some serious paint by numbers project.
I set up my "painting station" and started painting away with number five first, then one, then seven...and for a moment, I didn't think of anything but filling the space with paint. Bob Ross sure knows a thing or two about painting happy trees.
Here are the 12 watercolor scribbles I did last year and let's not forget my new Bob Ross happy snow mountain landscape to add to my collection!
No plans for the weekend? No worries!
I think a masterpiece is just waiting for you at the art store. Just look for the man with the crazy hair on the box and you are in the right place.
