When I lived down south in a shared house, Bob Ross would be required viewing while everyone was getting ready for a night out. Not sure why, it just worked.Peapod made a guest appearance at the start of the program a couple of weeks ago. I was wondering if Bob was ever going to get on with the painting the way he kept going on about him. Seriously though, Bob just goes to show what can be achieved in half an hour if you know what you're doing. My missus can't stand him, which gives me even more reason to watch.
I'm sure I read that his works have since gone into storage and you cannot get an original Bob Ross.I read somewhere that quite a few of his paintings ended up in PBS stations all over the US.
There was a thing on US telly a couple of years ago about the mans paintings. The reporter was a bit of a Bob Ross fan and wanted to know where all his paintings had ended up seeing as the great man himself is dead. It turned out that the paintings are mostly the property of the estate which is a corporate enterprise run by a couple of his friends and still minting coin in the name of Bob Ross to this day.
They must be making a killing as Bob Ross is all over in Washington state. Almost every shop you go in has Bob Ross merchandise.
The arty crafty shops like Hobby Lobby seem to stock a fair collection of painters
tatproducts sold using his name. It always seems to me though that Bob Ross branded products cost 3 times as much and have a lower quality.
