Today is bittersweet. It’s sad because it’s the last day of my first week, and many of the students I’ve met will be going home to return another time. And also sad because the rate at which time flew, means it will be over before I know it, and I’ll have to return to life as usual.
It’s happy because it’s the last day and I successfully completed the requirements and learned so many new and valuable things!
If you are new to my journey, I am wearing a new and different Bob Ross T-shirt every day of the 15 day course.
Here is today’s shirt:
I call this one “Space Bob”.
I’ve gotten a ton of compliments on it! However, “Mod Bob” seems to be the clear favorite so far.
Yesterday was a tough day for everyone I think. The rigorous pace wore everyone out. We all seem a bit overtired today. You wouldn’t believe how mentally demanding it is to be so focused and engaged for several hours on end.
Enough chatter, let’s get straight to today’s painting. I won’t ruin the surprise about how today’s format was layed out but what I will say is that everyone was done early. That’s a hint.
I’m not going to lie, I struggled today. Not because it’s a hard painting or because I didn’t know the elements but because of sheer exhaustion, as I mentioned earlier.
I kept dropping stuff, making a mess and staring at my canvas like a Zombie!
Okay, moving on. I want to discuss something that I fretted over for months before I started class. We are painting 25 canvasses in three weeks. Just how the stink are we supposed to transfer them home?
