This may seem silly, but I love that The Best of The Joy of Painting still plays on our local public television station. There’s just something about Bob Ross’s voice that’s incredibly relaxing after a stressful day.
I can just lay back and watch him paint happy trees, or talk about how he always forgets to put chimneys on cabins and viewers write in to say the people in those cabins must be freezing. And it all seems so easy, like I could do it.
It was a zen experience when I was 15. 20 years later, it still is.
