This post on Bob Ross may be a little surprise. Many will not remember him. His show on television (1983 - 1994) was a delight to watch. He would talk with his soft voice while he painted. He would talk about what he was painting and the approach he was using. He really had a talent and when he painted a tree it was like magic. It just came into existence right in front of your eyes.
Often he would take his brush to a place and begin to paint and would say that he was painting a "Happy Little Tree". Loved it when he did that. I have thought of that phrase so many times over the years. O yes, "A Happy Little Tree". Bob Ross had a passion for what he loved.
I was surprised looking at Amazon, where his book is listed and can be bought, that you can go to a merchandise list for Bob Ross items. You can, for example, buy Bob Ross Socks. Wow! That is interesting.
Passion for what you love is the message that Bob still conveys.
