Bob Ross

This video was posted on Faccebook yesterday, and I've made everyone in my house watch it. I just love it! Lately it's been a rather popular thing in art circles to knock Bob Ross. Well, maybe not directly, but if you want to discount a landscape artist you call him a "Bob Ross Knockoff". There is some legitamicy to it, because there is a lot more to art than learning techniques and imitating someone else. But there's also a little art snobbery in there. Or at least that's the way it comes off to me.
I love Bob Ross though. He seemed like a genuine, kind person who delighted in teaching people to paint. So, anyway, watch the video and see if it doesn't make you feel a little more cheery.

  1. I love Bob Ross! My sister and I would watch him paint in awe when we were kids but for some reason we always referred to him as "Distance" not Bob...still watched him any chance we could though!
