new stuff in the works

i've watched all the bob ross there is to see on netflix. i hope more will come along eventually. it's uplifting, relaxing, and totally inspiring. because of that binge watching, i've picked up some of his techniques, so i found that i can actually dream up a bob ross painting pretty easily from scratch. this one, however, i painted referencing a nice painting of his after a very short google image search. it took about an hour to finish and i was grinning the whole time. gouache is certainly a different animal from oil! no brush beater rack needed to save my marriage! i hope you love this as much as i do. this painting will be released as a greeting card in august! :)

until then... happy painting! and god bless, my friend!
