About Bob Ross®

You’ve seen him before. He’s the soft-spoken guy painting happy clouds, mountains and trees in about twenty-six television minutes, using big house painting-type brushes and cooing smoothly “you can do it” to the audience. His Joy of Painting program is the most recognized, most watched TV art show in history.

“You have unlimited power here, you can do that. You can do anything on this canvas, anything …”  — Bob Ross
