One of my earliest memories of seeing art being created was reruns of The Joy of Painting on PBS. I mocked Bob Ross' gentle manner and wild afro when I was a kid, but as I got older I came to appreciate Ross' talent and his desire to share his love for painting with the world.
Now Bob Ross is sure to entertain a new generation with Bob Ross: Remixed…
Seriously, what is not to love about this video? It features the master of quick landscape painting dropping such memory lines as, "This is your world, you're the creator, find freedom on this canvas." and "Give it a little touch, give it a little push, make love to the canvas." I've already watched the video half a dozen times ... and wouldn't be surprised if the soundtrack, which was mixed by Symphony of Science's John D. Boswell. makes its way onto my iPod. Perhaps I'll eventually be inspired to paint some happy little clouds into a landscape.
