The next Bob Ross


For a while now I have REALLY wanted to try canvas painting!
Nearly a year ago Mike, Jeff, Venita and I fell asleep on the couches on Sunday afternoon
to a Bob Ross video....what a soothing voice he has!! ha-ha
Anyway...a few weeks ago I bought some canvas boards and today the paint!
Mike downloaded a Bob Ross show for me to learn from and I did it! I painted with Bob!!
Here is what we painted today!
PLEASE remember this is my first attempt ever at painting an actual picture aside from paint by numbers and those cool water color paint books where you just run a wet brush over the already colored lines!!
Mike stepped out to run a few errands and when he came back I had completed this! He was actually pretty impressed.....for my first attempt, so of course, what else is left to do?
Blog about it!

You're a woman of many talents. Nice job! I can honestly say I would be worried about the turn out of something like that if I ever attempted it, but you...you are at artist!
