This scene reminds me of the great artist Bob Ross.  I really enjoy his style of painting and his easy going manner.  He would create these masterpieces with seemingly little effort and just when you would think that he was finished, he would say "Let's just put a happy little tree right about....there".  He was so bold and cavalier with his brush strokes and he had such wonderful artistic vision.  He had such a soft spoken spirit but his art screamed with confidence and beauty.  He mainly painted landscapes that were inspired from his time spent in Alaska when he was in the Air Force. He perfected his technique and taught it to millions of aspiring artists.  Did you know that Bob donated his time on his PBS show?
