Happy Birthday to Bob Ross! Mr. Ross would have been 70 today. Many of you may know him as the painting guy with the ‘fro that you watched paint landscapes full of “happy little trees” on PBS, usually when you stayed home sick from school. As you watched him paint, you undoubtedly thought that this was something you could do.
So, you got out the watercolors and painted something that started out with promise but gradually became a mess with a brownish-yellow sun and green blob that represented a tree. You called it “abstract” to save face and waited for the next episode of The Joy of Painting to see what you were doing wrong.
