We’ll put some happy little leaves here and there. I’m going to mix up a little color. We’ll use Van Dyke Brown, Permanent Red, and a little bit of Prussian Blue. When you buy that first tube of paint it gives you an artist license. We don’t have anything but happy trees here.
It’s so important to do something every day that will make you happy. If what you’re doing doesn’t make you happy – you’re doing the wrong thing. Just make a decision and let it go. It’s hard to see things when you’re too close. Take a step back and look. Paint anything you want on the canvas. Create your own world.
In nature, dead trees are just as normal as live trees. That’s a son of a gun of a cloud. If I paint something, I don’t want to have to explain what it is. The only prerequisite is that it makes you happy. If it makes you happy then it’s good. Just take out whatever you don’t want. It’ll change your entire perspective. We have no limits to our world. We’re only limited by our imagination.
