TEST Whatever Makes You Happy EXHIBITION TITLE

Subtitle Sometimes You Learn More From Your Mistakes
May 1, 2019 - May 31, 2021

You can get away with a lot. This is your world, whatever makes you happy you can put in it. Go crazy. We start with a vision in our heart, and we put it on canvas.

Use absolutely no pressure. Just like an angel's wing. Sometimes you learn more from your mistakes than you do from your masterpieces. A fan brush is a fantastic piece of equipment. Use it. Make friends with it. Let your imagination just wonder around when you're doing these things. I'm a water fanatic. I love water. In your imagination you can go anywhere you want.

It just happens - whether or not you worried about it or tried to plan it. Now then, let's play. All those little son of a guns. Just a happy little shadow that lives in there. We don't have to be concerned about it. We just have to let it fall where it will.

This is probably the greatest thing that's ever happened in my life. Talk to trees, look at the birds. Whatever it takes. You can do it. Now we'll take the almighty fan brush.

Let's make some happy little clouds in our world. We have no limits to our world. We're only limited by our imagination. Trees cover up a multitude of sins. Let's build an almighty mountain.

And maybe, maybe, maybe... Everybody's different. Trees are different. Let them all be individuals. It's cold, but it's beautiful. A tree cannot be straight if it has a crooked trunk. Clouds are free. They just float around the sky all day and have fun.

We can always carry this a step further. There's really no end to this. Just a little indication. Without washing the brush, I'm gonna go right into some Van Dyke Brown, some Burnt Umber, and a little bit of Sap Green.
