Don’t kill all your dark areas – you need them to show the light. The more we do this – the more it will do good things to our heart. Let the paint work. When things happen – enjoy them. They’re little gifts. Just a happy little shadow that lives in there.

Let’s have a little bit of fun today. 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. Let’s make some happy little clouds in our world. Isn’t it fantastic that you can change your mind and create all these happy things? Trees live in your fan brush, but you have to scare them out. Every highlight needs it’s own personal shadow.
