Put it in, leave it alone.

There we go. If you didn't have baby clouds, you wouldn't have big clouds. Look around, look at what we have. Beauty is everywhere, you only have to look to see it. This is a happy place, little squirrels live here and play.

Just let them happen.

You've got to learn to fight the temptation to resist these things. Just let them happen. When you buy that first tube of paint it gives you an artist license. If you've been in Alaska less than a year you're a Cheechako. Just let go - and fall like a little waterfall.

It looks so good, I might as well not stop.

And that's when it becomes fun - you don't have to spend your time thinking about what's happening - you just let it happen. Let your imagination be your guide. Maybe there's a happy little waterfall happening over here.

Son of a gun. We're not trying to teach you a thing to copy.

We're just here to teach you a technique, then let you loose into the world. How to paint. That's easy. What to paint. That's much harder. Even trees need a friend. We all need friends.

Every single thing in the world has its own personality - and it is up to you to make friends with the little rascals. You have to make those little noises or it won't work. You can spend all day playing with mountains. It takes dark in order to show light. It's a good way of getting rid of all your anxieties and hostilities.

The only thing worse than yellow snow is green snow. Let that brush dance around there and play. Everything's not great in life, but we can still find beauty in it.

I sincerely wish for you every possible joy life could bring.

In your world you can create anything you desire. You want your tree to have some character. Make it special. If you do too much it's going to lose its effectiveness. Go out on a limb - that's where the fruit is.
