There is immense joy in just watching - watching all the little creatures in nature.

Everyone needs a friend. Friends are the most valuable things in the world. You can work and carry-on and put lots of little happy things in here. Just pretend you are a whisper floating across a mountain. These little son of a guns hide in your brush and you just have to push them out. Sometimes you learn more from your mistakes than you do from your masterpieces.

So often we avoid running water, and running water is a lot of fun. Everybody's different. Trees are different. Let them all be individuals. Isn't it great to do something you can't fail at? You have to allow the paint to break to make it beautiful.

We'll throw some old gray clouds in here just sneaking around and having fun. By now you should be quite happy about what's happening here. Put it in, leave it alone. Poor old tree. Just a happy little shadow that lives in there. Let your heart be your guide.

If I paint something, I don't want to have to explain what it is. Learn when to stop. Now we'll take the almighty fan brush. How do you make a round circle with a square knife? That's your challenge for the day.

Maybe he has a little friend that lives right over here. If you hypnotize it, it will go away. You don't have to spend all your time thinking about what you're doing, you just let it happen. Anyone can paint. You don't have to be crazy to do this but it does help.

If you do too much it's going to lose its effectiveness. Of course he's a happy little stone, cause we don't have any other kind. There's nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend.

There's not a thing in the world wrong with washing your brush. Let that brush dance around there and play. I'm a water fanatic. I love water. Now we don't want him to get lonely, so we'll give him a little friend. Don't kill all your dark areas - you need them to show the light.
