Why, hello there.

Here is some Bob Ross lorem ipsum for you to enjoy:

There's not a thing in the world wrong with washing your brush. Sometimes you learn more from your mistakes than you do from your masterpieces. Don't be afraid to make these big decisions. Once you start, they sort of just make themselves. Water's like me. It's laaazy ... Boy, it always looks for the easiest way to do things

No pressure. Just relax and watch it happen. All you have to learn here is how to have fun. Put light against light - you have nothing. Put dark against dark - you have nothing. It's the contrast of light and dark that each give the other one meaning. How do you make a round circle with a square knife? That's your challenge for the day. Everyone wants to enjoy the good parts - but you have to build the framework first. We artists are a different breed of people. We're a happy bunch. We don't have to be committed. We are just playing here. I get carried away with this brush cleaning.

Trees get lonely too, so we'll give him a little friend. Poor old tree. Let's have a happy little tree in here. You have to make these big decisions. The very fact that you're aware of suffering is enough reason to be overjoyed that you're alive and can experience it. We'll put all the little clouds in and let them dance around and have fun. 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.

If you don't think every day is a good day - try missing a few. You'll see. You don't want to kill all your dark areas they are very important. The man who does the best job is the one who is happy at his job. Painting should do one thing. It should put happiness in your heart. Just relax and let it flow. That easy. Let the paint work. We'll throw some old gray clouds in here just sneaking around and having fun. You don't have to spend all your time thinking about what you're doing, you just let it happen. You can create anything that makes you happy.
