Bob Ross. The man. The artist. The legend. I used to watch Bob paint when I was a kid and I knew he was a genius. He was always so in tune with nature and it came across in his paintings. In my humble opinion, he will always be better than I am, because he had squirrels for friends. How peaceful must the human soul be to be friend creatures so small, and make us all feel that they are so important? I rant about Bob to this day, mostly because the wet on wet technique doesnt work well for my art…especially with acrylic paint. This is not the first post I’ve done dedicated to Mr. Ross. It wont be the last. Check out this article with random facts about Bob and let me know your thoughts. Happy painting.
Happy New Year, Folks! Another year is gone by and the celebration is almost over. I just had a birthday and joined the arthritis club for seniors. In any event, while celebrating the New Year/Birthday I saw a boat load of problems unfold for people while enjoying their alcohol. I saw a guy get hit by a car.I tried to defuse a domestic dispute that could have been deadly. I saw people going to jail for fighting and I tried to remain calm while dealing with a drunk friend who wanted to drive.
If you are reading this, it’s too damn early.
We are in the 9 o’clock hour. I didn’t get to bed until 3am this morning, but I’m already awake. I can’t help but wonder…isn’t it too damn early in the year to be in jail, dead, or under someone’s parked car? Is it too damn early for me to give the side eye to the upcoming events of this year?
Happy New Year to everyone who is up early and plotting how 2016 is going to be even more awesome than 2015.
