Ask anyone who's the most beloved American painter of all time. It's not Norman Rockwell. It's not Whistler. It's not Pollock. Not Hopper, de Kooning, or Sargent. It's Bob Ross. Bob Ross and his hair that must have been a toupee.
Despite having grown up in Florida, the late Ross became one of the most prolific landscape painters in America, recording 403 happy episodes of The Joy of Painting. In the course of his 11 seasons, he created iconic canvases filled with "happy accidents" and "happy trees."
