Krypton Radio V.O.D
Now when many of us think of superheroes, we naturally tend to have images of Batman, or Iron Man, or many other spandex clad super powered people fighting crime. But when you really think about it, superheroes come in so many different forms. A lot of us call people superheroes for the sheer fact that they inspired us, or had an impact on our lives in a very significant way. One such person to have an impact on many people’s lives is none other than master artist Bob Ross. Mr Ross wasn’t a world famous comic book artist, he was a painter and a dreamer whose gentle demeanor and passion for art inspired many of us to take up the brush and get into the art world ourselves.
His fans know him from his world famous television show Joy Of Painting, where he taught his television audience painting techniques and frequently added happy little trees and happy little clouds to his works of art. Joy Of Painting ran from 1983 to 1994 on PBS, only being discontinued due to Ross having to retire and to battle cancer. Sadly he passed away in 1995, two years after his second wife had passed away, also from cancer. PBS recently released a wonderful musical tribute to Mr. Ross, featuring clips from his show, and titled it “Happy Little Clouds”.
So we thought we’d brighten up your Sunday with a happy little music video from PBS Digital Studios, featuring art legend Bob Ross.
