|Imagining Myself With a 'Fro|
He puts me to sleep with his friendly trees and big ole mountains. His voice from my DVR puts me at ease when the real world is kicking me in the nuts. This tall afro'ed white man is my personal sandman.
Heck, I even imagined what it would be like if he had done tattoos.
Recently I decided I needed to know if it was the voice, the painting, or both. I embarked on a journey, on the Internet, to find a certified Bob Ross instructor to be my guide on this bigger quest. Well, that or teach me to paint.
|"Northern Lights" is an awesome painting.|
My journey lead me to Barb Powell, Hobby Lobby in
I know you can't imagine that little old brilliant with the words me could be equally awesome with pictures, so...I took pictures. (Or you can check out the student art on Barb's site where I am number 519 (you can hit Prev and get there from the beginning, I think)
I hope you enjoy this:
|Started with a Black Canvas|
|After putting on the under colors, I started the curtains|
|Curtains "drawn" and Mountain Begun!|
|Thanks Barb for the help getting over the Mountain!|
|"Happy" Trees with "Friends"|
|Finished and Framed|
Thanks Barb for your brilliance and more importantly your patience! Along with your comedic sidekick, Woody who gave me continuous encouragement from his spot in the back, I would not have made it without you both. Thanks to Vicky with the wonderful water and beautiful Unabomber cabin, being able to look over your shoulder from 2 tables back and watch you work was inspiring. To my fellow mountain virgins, Katie and Emily, I enjoyed our conversation and you made it really easy to not feel too intimidated.
If I had more than "Start a Bucket List" on my bucket list, this would certainly have been on it. CHECK!
I should probably have waited until the New Year, then I could have said this was a New Years Resolution, but since you know I rarely make those, I suppose I won't.
Have you been over to Dude Write yet? Some really funny writers hang out there, who happen to be Dudes.
