Posted By: The Ski Channel on October 29, 2012 5:53 pm

Today is a great day! Not only is it snowing at some of our favorite North American mountain resorts, but it just so happens to be the birthday of the late great Bob Ross. 

Bob Ross was a man who dedicated a majority of his life to sharing his love of painting with the viewers of PBS and the world. For more than a decade, Bob introduced viewers to the world of art through his show The Joy of PaintingHe will forever be remembered for his soothing voice, amazing artistic talent and pleasant demeanor. Without Bob Ross, we would never know the emotional depth possessed by trees, mountains and streams.

So lets enjoy the soothing sounds of Mr. Ross as he puts his brush to canvas to create some happy little snow covered mountains.

“In painting, you have unlimited power. You have the ability to move mountains.”

~ Bob Ross
