Channeling My Inner Bob Ross

 I'm currently taking a break from a project that is driving me bonkers!  
Maybe I should think of it as a "happy accident".  More on that later.

 Taking a break for me usually means grabbing a paint brush and getting busy.  
There's just something so therapeutic about painting.  

This realization makes me think of Bob Ross.

So this child-sized antique washstand ended up getting what I think are "happy, fluffy, little clouds" in the paint and in the mirror. 

As I painted and dry brushed and swirled, I could just hear his soothing voice.  "Maybe in our world there lives a happy little tree over there."  Can you hear him, too?

(I watched a lot of PBS as a kid)

"and that'll just be our little secret."

*all quotes from Bob Ross himself.
