I watched the episode again (I am such a visual learner) and headed over to my kitchen table with some black and white paint, brushes, and an 8x10 canvas board. I was scared to make the first stroke with the brush but once I did I was hooked. I know this is a very rough beginner piece but I am proud of it nonetheless. I like my happy little trees! And I hope you do too.

First Landscape . . . inspired by Bob Ross
Around the time I started really wanting to pick up a paintbrush back in February I started watching reruns of The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross. I found it entertaining, relaxing, and inspiring to watch him paint. He made it look so easy. I thought . . . "hey, maybe I can do that." Although I knew it certainly wouldn't be easy I knew I wanted to give it a try. I kept the episode on DVR and my husband surprised me the next day with some brushes and acrylic paint.
