Long version

There’s nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend. This is where you take out all your hostilities and frustrations. It’s better than kicking the puppy dog around and all that so. Let’s put a touch more of the magic here. That’s crazy. Go out on a limb – that’s where the fruit is.

With something so strong, a little bit can go a long way. All those little son of a guns. Maybe there’s a happy little bush that lives right there. No worries. No cares. Just float and wait for the wind to blow you around. This is your world. If you don’t like it – change it. It’s your world.

A fan brush can be your best friend. All you have to do is let your imagination go wild. Let’s have a little bit of fun today. This is your creation – and it’s just as unique and special as you are.

Everyone needs a friend. Friends are the most valuable things in the world. 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. Use absolutely no pressure. Just like an angel’s wing. See. We take the corner of the brush and let it play back-and-forth. The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe.

Medium version

How to paint. That’s easy. What to paint. That’s much harder. For the lack of a better word I call them hangy downs. You’ve got to learn to fight the temptation to resist these things. Just let them happen.

If these lines aren’t straight, your water’s going to run right out of your painting and get your floor wet. There is no right or wrong – as long as it makes you happy and doesn’t hurt anyone. Trees grow in all kinds of ways. They’re not all perfectly straight. Not every limb is perfect. Don’t fight it, use what happens. Don’t be afraid to make these big decisions. Once you start, they sort of just make themselves.

Don’t be afraid to make these big decisions. Once you start, they sort of just make themselves. And I know you’re saying, ‘Oh Bob, you’ve done it this time.’ And you may be right. Don’t fiddle with it all day.

Short version

That’s a son of a gun of a cloud. Here’s something that’s fun. Let your imagination be your guide.

Here we’re limited by the time we have. This is an example of what you can do with just a few things, a little imagination and a happy dream in your heart. Let’s make a happy little mountain now.
