I think Bob Ross was the greatest human who ever lived. Many people talk about how great of an artist he was but he really wasn't that good, he just used some simple techniques effectively. Of course I'm only judging this from the 30 minute compositions I've seen him do on his old show, "The Joy of Painting". Though that is also what everyone else bases their opinion on, so it's fair. I'm sure his personal work was marvelous. What's more important is that there never was a man who loved life more than Bob did. While he would be painting, we would be chatting away to the audience like he personally knew each and every one of them. He would often have small woodland creatures, such as baby flying squirrels, that he would show off and play with. Damn, I would have loved to meet that guy.
