"Jeff Goldblum"

December 31, 1969

At home you have unlimited time. Don't be bashful drop me a line. Let's make some happy little clouds in our world.

We'll paint one happy little tree right here. Now we can begin working on lots of happy little things. I'm gonna add just a tiny little amount of Prussian Blue. Let's do that again. Just let this happen. We just let this flow right out of our minds.

Isn't that fantastic? Just let your mind wander and enjoy. This should make you happy. Of course he's a happy little stone, cause we don't have any other kind.

How to paint. That's easy. What to paint. That's much harder. I guess I'm a little weird. I like to talk to trees and animals. That's okay though; I have more fun than most people. You got your heavy coat out yet? It's getting colder. Nature is so

fantastic, enjoy it. Let it make you happy. There's nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend.

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. Sometimes you learn more from your mistakes than you do from your masterpieces. Give him a friend, we forget the trees get lonely too. Let all these things just sort of happen. I thought today we would make a happy little stream that's just running through the woods here.

Just beat the devil out of it. Let's get wild today. Be so very light. Be a gentle whisper. If these lines aren't straight, your water's going to run right out of your painting and get your floor wet. There's not a thing in the world wrong with washing your brush.

In nature, dead trees are just as normal as live trees. You can create the world you want to see and be a part of. You have that power. Let your heart take you to wherever you want to be. As trees get older they lose their chlorophyll.

Use what happens naturally, don't fight it. Every time you practice, you learn more. Let's just drop a little Evergreen right here.

Put your feelings into it, your heart, it's your world. Just let these leaves jump off the brush I can't think of anything more rewarding than being able to express yourself to others through painting. Let that brush dance around there and play. It is a lot of fun. It's cold, but it's beautiful.

I like to beat the brush. I'm gonna start with a little Alizarin crimson and a touch of Prussian blue Every day I learn. Just make little strokes like that. You don't have to spend all your time thinking about what you're doing, you just let it happen. We need a shadow side and a highlight side.
