Bob Ross was an American painter who appeared on TV with the entertaining “The Joy of Painting”, from 1983 to 1994. In his half-hour instructional show, Ross would paint something using different brushes and tools while teaching his viewers about his painting techniques.

He would begin with simple strokes of paint that didn’t seem to amount to anything. Then he would add more and more strokes and the picture would begin to take shape. He would keep talking with his audience about the “happy little clouds” and “happy little trees” he was drawing. He would also add snippets of life stories in his little painting lessons. These included stories from his previous military career, the time he spent in Alaska, family anecdotes and also stories about the little animals he would raise and set free. It was all a very entertaining experience overall and you would love listening to him.

And today, he is an icon of television and a character that would attract a lot of memes and also Deadpool. Yeah, Deadpool is also a great fan of Bob Ross. Did this get your attention?
