    Bob Ross died from *cancer*
    Oil paints are a magical medium, but please use care.
    If you're going to try oil painting, please have adequate ventilation (ideally an open window and a small fan) and if you're going to use your fingertips the way he sometimes did, please consider latex or nitrile gloves. Oil paint should not be on your skin.
    Any rags that have thinner on them are combustible, and should be stored in an airtight jar or disposed of in a trashcan not stored directly against your home.

    Honestly in some way all art is therapy. Many people struggle with expressing how they feel inside and bottle there shit up so having a creative outlet like singing,dancing,drawing,painting, craftsmanship of any kind or even something as simply as writing in a journal commonly keeps so much stress off peoples back that it saves lives. Find something you enjoy to better express your feelings because stress can be a bitch. No, I'm not saying you can replace a licensed professional with a hobby you lunatic still go there. Everyone should go to a therapist in my opinion. The stigma of it being only for crazy people seems quite childish in nature. We are all quite crazy. It's emotional vulnerability that is feared not something as meaningless as the concept of being somewhat against the norm of society from a mental or emotional stand point because we are all unique fucked up creatures doing our best to find our own semblance of happiness in this life before we eventually die a meaningless death. :) Just don't make the mistake I made as a child when it comes to therapists. They are quite worthless and even detrimental if you don't actually communicate your problems for a decade of my childhood i was misdiagnosed simply because I was unwilling to open up. Not that I am anywhere near similar to that now. I simply don't have any bottled up things anymore. I'm 100% a open book to everyone :)

    -I would like to have some pie now.

    STEPHEN You are an alcoholic and you don't want to be, but there's nothing you can do to change it. Not all the prayers to your god, not all the analysis you can buy in all the years you've got left to live.
    You may one day be able to know the total abstinence life if you want it desperately enough....but you'll always be an alcoholic as well. Always... always. Until the day you die.
    ...and if you both drink and smoke U will need to understand that there is a direct connection between the liquor buds in your mouth and the smoke pouch in your lungs and that if U want to stop smoking... the doctors are going to have to physically cut that thing between your smoke bone and your drink bone and if they do that, your head will fall off!

    Do you know why therapists and psychiatrists become doctors? It's confidential, so I won't betray their trust.

  • tiny dancer
    tiny dancer 7 months ago

    Confidentiality has been eliminated in the art world, the medical field, and the retail profession. (Don't tell anyone I told you, or I'll have to kill you)

    When my cat sounded like that it was louder and more scarier cause I stepped on her and she shrieked in pain and then died. I never told anyone about this before. Your art must've calmed me to trust both of you to tell my story.

    You should have gotten a patent for that wall art before you showed it to the world. Now look what you've done. Perfect screen saver.

    Just because she doesn't have a license, she is the first lady and deserves to be called Dr or even Queen, for that matter. The first lady commands what she will be called and who she will allow to call it, bitches. I'm not referring to the second lady either.

    There are not enough hours in a night that an artist can work through the wounds since they spend the whole night getting ideas of things to make which leaves little time for woundiness

  • tiny dancer
    tiny dancer 7 months ago

    Art therapists have licenses? I guess that legitimizes the claims they make of being artistic even if they are not too good. Do they go by Dr. Art?

    My grandmother used to be a waitress, and Bob Ross always came to her restaurant. She served him food many times, and has an autograph of his. She said that he was always very nice and was very well mannered. Rest in peace, Bob Ross. You had a great life and helped so many people. My Grandma misses you.

    It makes me uncomfortable knowing how much this profession struggles to validate itself in the mental health profession... and this guy torn it apart within minutes with thousands of viewers. Nonetheless she allowed herself and her profession to me mocked. Very frustrating. What does AATA have to say to this misrepresentation?
