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.
First, let me preface this by saluting everyone world wide who is fighting the good fight against crohns disease. I was diagnosed in 2015, after years of medication for a mystery illness affecting my joints, eyes, and skin. The disease affects everyone differently, and can be super difficult to cope with. I came across this article/blog by Meghan Telpner on some tools she used in her healing journey. There is no cure for crohns (they say), but I believe in the healing and transforming of lives through the human spirit and the power of the most high God. Check out the article, and notice how much of these practices could be beneficial to your everyday life regardless of your situation. Spread light! #DoItNow
Over the last few months I’ve spoken with friends about the things they would like to accomplish in 2017. Some wanted to focus more on health while others simply wanted to pursue a more challenging career. Alas, the sweet smell of February is upon us. Do you know where your new year’s resolutions are? Are you drinking your water and minding your business? Have you finally quit smoking? There is NO BETTER TIME THAN NOW to get started if you haven’t already. I believe in you. #DoItNow
