Happy 70th Birthday, Bob! {Bob Ross}


You can’t deny that  Bob Ross’s tv show, Joy of Painting, was inspiring. Whether his show inspired you to paint,  made you curious about art or techniques, or his voice lulled you to sleep… I have no doubt that we all (people over age 20) have a memory of Bob and his show! I recently learned Bob is from Florida, enrolled in the military after high school, and saw mountains and snow for the first time in Alaska, where he was stationed.  Mountains, snow, and snow creatures were a reoccurring theme in his artwork. (See Bob’s bio here.) Today, Bob Ross would turn 70, and in his honor, I put together a collection of Bob Ross inspired links:
