Bob's TV shows... and his simple, step by step classes, made art accessible to the general public.  For some of the more snobbish "Arteests"... that was unacceptable.

Personally, I thought the man rocked.

I am 35, and I remember watching Bob Ross when I was little painting the "happy clouds", and was absolutely in awe of him, and his paintings.  I always wanted to paint like him, but it isn't my gift, so instead I would just sit there as close to the TV as I could possibly get, and be mesmerized by his talent and his soothing voice.  Go BOB!

Bob Ross!!  Oh man, how many hours of my childhood did I spend plastered to the TV, wishing I had palate knives and fan brushes so I could make friendly little streams and happy trees and proud branches like him??  TOO MANY, I tell you.

Great job, and a great tribute to an iconic painter.  Smiley

Your drawings are great.  I too loved his "happy little clouds".  He was a great inspiration and continues to be in his reruns on PBS.  Thanks for sharing.
