Bob Ross: the man, the myth, the wet on wet guru. Our class can't get enough of his painting method and mesmerizing pipes. And to think, this dude spent 20 years in the military yelling at people to stand up straight...
Blue sky calms people down
Green trees make them relaxed
Dark soil nurtures those trees
But we need colorful flowers to embellish the world and create happiness
Title: “Season in the eyes”
The companion poem:
“Snow falling above
Shades changing below
Let your tears go
Like rivers that flow.”
“Trees are here to give us support,
The beauty of the spring is approaching to give us peace
All we were waiting for.”
"Happy painting makes your day happy you will make things nicely."
Look into the green. Since you fell in love with them
You would know my mind .
"I think the closest any of us will ever get to God, or a higher consciousness, or whatever you call it; is when doing art, when possessed by the spirit and guided by the bold strokes of the artist."
Another class, another tutorial...
Munkhzaya was inspired by the genius work of Mykola. In her mind were the words that you always have a second chance; just keep doing it, don't give up. Just take a look at this painting, it's fantastic!
"I wanted to capture how the colors are diffused and mixed in the distance, but also the impressive intense blue of the sky."
"I was born in Turkey. I am inspired from nature and the beauties of America in this painting."
- M.Cosku Gursoy
"There are two things that calm my soul down - art and nature. This painting is a reflection of my soul. This painting is my soul."-Vitalina
The painting is titled "Island in the Sea" and was created by a Japanese immigrant named Eri. "Island in the Sea" represents a he feeling of isolation that immigrants often feel when they migrate to a country with very different cultures, languages and appearances. While integrating into a new culture can be lonely at times it can also be beautiful.
"I am truly blessed to have these amazing folks as my students." - Eric
