American painter, art instructor and television host, Bob Ross taught a lot of people to believe they could paint. His PBS show The Joy of Paintingran for more than a decade.
Google celebrated the 70th anniversary of his birthday with a Google Doodle on October 29, 2012. It portrayed Ross painting a depiction of the letter “G” with a landscape in the background.
Ross canceled The Joy of Painting in 1994 due to his battle with lymphoma. He died on July 4, 1995. He was 52.
We miss his happy little trees.
