Flying the Coop

Another chapter, a new adventure…

I finally pulled out my paints.

I’ve been meaning to pull out my painting stuff all month. Tonight I finally did it! I cued up Bob Ross on Netflix and got messy.

Oh, hey! I just realized that they didn’t say, “take chances, make mistakes, get messy,” in the new Magic School Bus series. That’s one of my most favourite quotes of all time! Huh. 🤔

Bob was painting a beautiful seascape with fiery skies and deep-coloured ocean water. I started with the red and orange skies but ended up painting dark and jagged mountains taking over the canvas.

A painting of dark, shadowy mountains in front of an orange sky at sunset.
Here’s the painting that I made! It’s rough, but I like it and had a nice time painting it.

Anyway… yeah. I’m going to keep painting.

    Can we get pictures of your painting next post? I’ve seen your sketches and digital art but I’ve never seen a painting from you. **is quite curious**

        Yes! — It’s pretty! Those colors are nice and it made me smile. I miss mountains. Thanks for sharing it 🙂
