Happy Little Clouds


Does anyone else remember Bob Ross? Y'know, the painter guy from PBS who made oil painting seems so damned easy?

I remember watching Bob Ross paint on Saturday afternoons on the local PBS affiliate WHYY Channel 12 back home in Philly. It used to amaze me how easy Bob could paint landscapes and make it appear anyone with the ability to pick up a brush could repeat the process. Oh, that and his "happy little clouds" and "happy little trees."

Decided it's time to develop a new hobby and explore my creative side, so I'm off to the art store later this week to get some meager art supplies. I'll keep you posted on how it turns out. I don't expect to be the next Rembrandt or anything, but I need sometime to take up my spare time other than reading and the Internet while I'm mending my wounds.

I'd forgotten about Bob Ross. I used to watch him and was fascinated with his ability to paint.

Glad to hear you're developing a new hobby. The iPhone and Wii made my surgery recovery much more fun.

He made it look so easy, and damn that soothing voice could put you to sleep. I might be at the store buying my equipment right beside you.
