This is your world. You don't have to spend all your time thinking about what you're doing, you just let it happen. Mix your color marbly don't mix it dead. Go out on a limb - that's where the fruit is. A fan brush can be your best friend. All you need to paint is a few tools, a little instruction, and a vision in your mind. As trees get older they lose their chlorophyll. You create the dream - then you bring it into your world. I sincerely wish for you every possible joy life could bring. The least little bit can do so much.
