Indiana State Parks Hosting Virtual Bob Ross-Themed 5K to Save Their Happy Little Trees
Now, this is my kinda 5K!
Bob Ross the Painter of a Generation
I grew up in the 90s, so you betcha I grew up watching The Joy of Painting on PBS. The show featured Bob Ross painting a landscape, and it was always so calming. He had a way of making a painting (or watching someone else paint) be enjoyable and calming. He was known for his positive demeanor and phrases like "no mistakes, just happy accidents" and "we'll put a happy little tree here." Bob Ross was truly an icon. Unfortunately, he passed away in 1995, but he has left quite a legacy behind him.
