Homesteading is rapidly gaining in popularity these days, which is encouraging because homesteading is so rewarding and satisfying for those who choose too live that sort of lifestyle. It’s nothing new, our ancestors all lived this lifestyle, not by choice but by necessity, for survival and too flourish. The core of what homesteading is, put simply, is to be self reliant in providing for your essential needs in life. Food, clothing, shelter, and energy are things all humans need, and homesteaders pride themselves on being able too provide as much of this as possible by self reliance. Some homesteaders decide too make a vegetable garden, growing all the vegetables or as much as possible that their family needs. Raising animals for meat, dairy, and wool is another example of something a homesteader would do. Everyone needs too eat, but the goal of a homesteader is too generate as much of their own needs as possible with their own hands on their own land, instead of relying on grocery stores too provide it for them.
Let’s make a happy little mountain now. Let’s get wild today. If I paint something, I don’t want to have to explain what it is.
I’m sort of a softy, I couldn’t shoot Bambi except with a camera. Let your imagination be your guide. It looks so good, I might as well not stop. This painting comes right out of your heart. Any little thing can be your friend if you let it be.
Just go back and put one little more happy tree in there. Follow the lay of the land. It’s most important. A fan brush is a fantastic piece of equipment. Use it. Make friends with it.
Automatically, all of these beautiful, beautiful things will happen. I’m going to mix up a little color. We’ll use Van Dyke Brown, Permanent Red, and a little bit of Prussian Blue. Every highlight needs it’s own personal shadow.
All you have to do is let your imagination go wild. Just pretend you are a whisper floating across a mountain. Do an almighty painting with us. When things happen – enjoy them. They’re little gifts. That’s a crooked tree. We’ll send him to Washington.
This is the time to get out all your flustrations, much better than kicking the dog around the house or taking it out on your spouse. The only prerequisite is that it makes you happy. If it makes you happy then it’s good. See there how easy that is. That is when you can experience true joy, when you have no fear. You can get away with a lot. Put it in, leave it alone.
All you need to paint is a few tools, a little instruction, and a vision in your mind. This is your creation – and it’s just as unique and special as you are. This is a fantastic little painting. Maybe there’s a little something happening right here.
