I believe


Because he made making art a pleasure to watch, because he inspired zillions of people to just start making stuff, and most of all because he was infectious with his belief that making art was something anyone could do and that it would transform the way you see the world around you, let’s remember Bob Ross today.

I got a letter from somebody here a while back, and they said, ‘Bob, everything in your world seems to be happy.’ That’s for sure. That’s why I paint. It’s because I can create the kind of world that I want, and I can make this world as happy as I want it. Shoot, if you want bad stuff, watch the news.”

Please watch and share the following loving tribute. And from all of us here, I’d like to wish you happy painting, and God bless, my friend.

    You have to admire his love and enthusiasm for painting. Sure, he could be called corny, but that enthusiasm he had was wonderful. A great guy to spread his joy of art.

    I loved Bob Ross! He brought joy in the form of painting and he DID make you feel like you could do it too! I miss him, he was such a gentle soul. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

    I remember watching him with my Grandma when I was very, very little. She took up oil painting at the age of 75 so she’d have something to do when she got old. :-) And that’s why she never really got old.

    I have a friend who started painting after watching Bob Ross on TV. He’d watch and paint along with him. I hope he’s still painting.
