Trivia

During his service for the USAF in Alaska, Bob Ross was a drill sergeant. He said: "I was the guy who makes you scrub the latrine, the guy who makes you make your bed, the guy who screams at you for being late to work. The job requires you to be a mean, tough person. And I was fed up with it." Once retired He vowed never to yell again, creating his characteristic soothing voice tones. See more »

One of my all time favorite shows!
22 December 2018 | by lorawirthlinSee all my reviews

Never has there been a TV personality as kind, gentle and genuine as Bob Ross. My mother was an amateur painter and I used to watch his show along with her as a child. Together we would delight in the magic that occurred each time Bob put brush to canvas in a short 30 minute episode. As an adult, I have rediscovered the joy & pleasure that comes from watching Bob paint a masterpiece before my eyes! His soft, lilting voice instills peace. His positivity and encouragement inspire confidence. The technique and instruction he shared provided the world with an opportunity to discover hidden talents. I miss Bob Ross; the world was truly a better place with him in it. I can only imagine the large number of beautiful paintings that would've been created, had he lived longer. But I am grateful for the life he led and the legacy he left behind!
