If you don't know who Bob Ross is, I assume that you either live across the pond or were raised in your attic, cut off from all outside contact, and fed through a slit in the door because your parents were ashamed of your horrifying deformity.

I used to watch his show quite a bit when I was a kid.  It always amazed me how fast he could throw together a nice looking landscape painting, and do so while using his oddly soothing, patient voice to explain exactly how to follow along and do it yourself.  When I taught guitar many years ago, I tried to teach in a similar manner...emphasis on tried, because my natural impatience always won out in the end.

Make love to it.  Caress it.

My mind has been blown. I always wondered how they managed to make mountains look so good, and here I just saw him whip one out in nothing flat. Wow.

You think he'd have a million paintings floating around on ebay driving the price down.


Maybe they're all already in Best Westerns across the country

"Make love to it. Caress it."

I can't believe he was able to say that on TV, in 1987, on PBS. That's awesome.

This was one of my favorite things to watch as a child.

 As somebody with no art talent he amazed me by being able to make things looks so good by doing so little. 'You just did 4 quick brush strokes, WHY IS THAT A BEAUTIFUL TREE?!' and why is it so happy?

 And I can't believe the guy who made Mr Rogers look stressed and angry was a drill sergeant.

Which is even more incredible once you knew that Mr. Rogers was a former sniper.

Wasn't that an old urban legend?

But I don't doubt he could've really kicked ass and took names if he had to defend his friendly neighborhood.

I should have posted this along with the other one earlier, but here's my favorite Mr. Rogers urban legend. I don't care if it's actually true - I want it to be. :)
