The Soft Spoken Words Of TV Painter Bob Ross

We watched Bob Ross on the public TV station in Mississippi when I was a kid. You wouldn’t think watching a soft spoken tree hugger smear paint on a canvas would be that captivating to a teenage boy but it was. I found myself totally immersed in Bob’s ability to smear globs of paint on a clean canvas and in thirty minutes you’d be staring at an amazing picture. You also got some great lessons in life too. Bob Ross was as much as philosopher as he was a painter and his soft spoken words were actually very useful keys to good living. 

A few years back I even went out and bought my very own Bob Ross paint set and started painting pictures. I found that painting was a great way to relax and unwind from my day. Painting also took me to places I had never been but still could see through my imagination. If it weren’t for Bob Ross this would have been part of my world I probably never would have seen.

In painting, you have unlimited power. You have the ability to move mountains. You can bend rivers. But when I get home, the only thing I have power over, is the garbage. – Bob Ross
