1. I truly found watching his show and "Teletubbies" to be refreshing...

They gave me a glimpse of what people say they feel after some serious yoga.

4. Happy trees ...
They showed it here after midnight (in the English original.)

If he inspired someone to pick up a brush and start painting: all my respect. Died way too young.

There was 2 painters, one took several episodes to finish 1 painting and I believe Ross is the guy who finished a painting in one episode. She would paint while watching him. I have a painting from my Grandma in my home.

6. He learned the Wet on Wet technique from Bill Alexander...
who's TV show didn't catch on like Bob Ross'. Ross also copied his talking style.

8. When I Was Recovering...
from knee surgery, and in excruciating pain, his voice was so soothing! Our local PBS station aired 2 hour blocks of his show and I would lie there, half asleep, half awake and just drift along.

His work was awesome, I'd love to own one!

10. You see him on the Create subchannel quite a bit...
Very relaxing, very enjoyable...

Until he took his beautiful landscape and stuck a poorly rendered cabin in it....

That always pissed me off.

12. aw HELL yes
Edited on Mon Apr-04-11 07:21 PM by Skittles
one thing the internet did for me was let me know I was not the only person who had zero interest in painting yet taped his show on my VCR because listening to his voice was better than valium for putting my third shift working ass to sleep - gawd, he was AWESOME

15. wow, haven't thought about that in years
I never watched it much, but he seemed like he had an infectious joy about things. I had an English teacher in high school, too, who looked very much like him :)
