8” x 10”, Acrylic on canvas, 2019 / $184
This painting was my demonstration piece for a Bob Ross painting class I used to teach to middle school students at Boys & Girls Club. It was inspired by my students who wanted to learn how to paint like Bob Ross. In my mind, Bob Ross was a generous soul, and his oh-so-chill tonality permeates the medium to bring you beauty and encourage you to enjoy the process of painting. Painting is a delight, even when it’s difficult. It is both challenging and rewarding, just like climbing a mountain, or traveling to see new sights.
