honoring Bob Ross

Eric suggested I fro my hair up a bit more in honor of Bob Ross. It's naturally close. But next time I will have to really work to make it happen.

"You can do ANYTHING you want to do. This is your world."

"It's the imperfections that make something beautiful, that's what makes it different and unique from everything else."

"Don't be afraid to scrape the paint off and do it again. This is the way you learn. Trial and error, over and over. Repetition. It pays you great dividends--great, great dividends."

"Jets let go--and fall like a little waterfall."

"People might look at you a bit funny, but it's ok. Artists are allowed to be a bit different."

"Whatever makes you happy, you put in your world."

"We don't make mistakes; we just have happy accidents."

"Trees don't grow even, they don't even grow straight. Just however it makes them happy."

"In painting, you have unlimited power. You have the ability to move mountains. You can bend rivers. But when I get home the only thing I have power over is the garbage."

"Ever make mistakes in life? Let's make them birds. Yeah, they're birds now."

"Put light against light--you have nothing. Put dark against dark--you have nothing. It's the contrast of light and dark that give the other one meaning."

"There's nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend."

"Everyone is going to see things differently--and that's the way it should be."

"We have no limits to our world. We're only limited by our imagination."

"It's hard to see things when you're too close. Take a step back and look."

"I can't think of anything more rewarding than being able to express yourself to others through painting. exercising the imagination, experimenting with talents, being creative; these things, to me, are truly the windows to your soul."

"Wash the brush. Just beat the devil out of it."
