  • I feel like they’re not doing his legacy justice. His legacy would live on so much longer if they gave away his paintings or even make a museum inspired by him, that way they still have ownership. It’s sad they’re just sitting in boxes catching dust.

  • Why BUY a Bob Ross... when you can paint one yourself? I believe THAT is what the spirit of Bob's work was all about. Not about his paintings, but your painting it too... Bob shared his work in a way that he was your friend having an enjoyable afternoon, evening, morning, painting a picture with friends who are following along. If you ask me... i'd like to see the works of those who sat and painted along with him...

  • Not to take away from Bob Ross but William Alexander aka Bill Alexander was teaching the wet-on-wet oil painting technique on television long before Bob Ross. Bill Alexander had his own TV show similar but before Bobs, he taught Bob and they were once friends. Bob gave full credit to Alexander for teaching him to paint. Check out Bill Alexander on TRvision and be fascinated, Check out Who taught Bob Ross wet on wet? On Google. Fascinating stuff indeed. Just some more history about Bob And Bill that wasn't really brought to light in this video. I loved and still do love a good old sit down to watch Bob Ross and his huge paint brush style.

  • How ironic, US CIA infiltrators' search to destroy Bob Ross and his positive portayal of an American capitalist white male ultimately incentivized his preservation to the point of purchasing his entire catalogue and honoring it in historic museums. American Capitalism wins again!
