Bob...BOB!!!! is 70yo (though, I think dead as well)

Um, it's the 70th anniversary of Bob Ross's birth. As an ubiquitous artist, as well as a celebrity celebrating a birthday which is one divisible by 5, I may just have to bad mouth this joint up and down the interwebz if I don't see some sort of contest posted immediately.

That's happy little trees to you, mister.

Google has his image on their main page, so obviously, between the boring reality and the ridiculous legend, the guy is good for business. I used to watch his show, followed by PBA mixed doubles every Saturday just before nap time...on those days I was lucky enough to get nap time.

I'd prefer a PBA mixed doubles contest, but what are ya gonna do? Sometimes you just need to learn to be satisfied with what life gives you.



And, sometimes you gotta wonder what the heck happened.

Yeah, I saw his image on Google main page, I had taped most of his shows, and did apply some of his techniques to my artwork.
He still lives on!!!!

Right now I'm worried that my happy little trees outside might fall on my house. turn away Sandy, turn away.

I used to watch his shows years ago. There was a lady called Nancy something. Anyone remember her?

You are in the Frankenstorm fallout zone (Global Warming is a myth)?

be safe and be well.


Azure - I know Sister Wendy and all she taught me about the classic work of paint on canvas about which she knew, but I am not familiar with this Nancy woman of whom you speak.

He was a great artist, but it's a bit tough to do a contest using his artwork, since it's been less that 70 years since his death and his art is all still copyrighted. We had cases where lawyers would go after us and made us remove such art chops. Which really sucked, because it removed the trophies and ratings from the members too.

Too bad Vlad, it could've been an interesting contest.

Yeah Malcolm, I'm in the Frankenstorm, some of these gusts have us worried, because of a couple of BIG trees around us.

given that the entire point of his art was for others to use that art to learn art, and because it was on Public Television here in the states, as well as the fact that Google is doing this, I really don't see that this would be a problem.

also, he was a horrible artist, but he's something of a cult celebrity, and he has a giant afro, so I had no thoughts that his art would be used...it was Bob himself that I assumed people would be using in their compositions.

I suppose a contest would be possible if no one used his "art", and only his image.
Heading to Home Depot now to get a few cases of Duct Tape, see ya later.

Thank you so much Vlad.
Trying to come up with an idea for the new hurricane warning signs contest, hopefully we won't loose power, but lights have been flickering.

Yeah, not a contest showing how Bob's art will be used for the election...but instead, it could be a tribute to him. Like we do when everyone else has a birthday, or dies... Besides, it would be cool to see how many ways he can be integrated with Obama, or Romney, Or a given a bobble head and baby body.

I saw Sister Wendy on tv last night.

I found Nancy Kominsky on You Tube. She was a larger than life lady.
