  • They should make a gallery or museum in his name and display his work. It will become a landmark for the city or town and great tourist attraction. And I'm suprised noone has honoured him in this manner. Also have a fund in his name for future artists...etc so people who come can donate or the entry fee 20% of it goes to his fund or something

  • I feel like they’re not doing his legacy justice. His legacy would live on so much longer if they gave away his paintings or even make a museum inspired by him, that way they still have ownership. It’s sad they’re just sitting in boxes catching dust.

    • But then they wouldn’t be fulfilling his wishes. He never wanted to sell his paintings to the public or display them, he just wanted to inspire people to get creative because everyone can. It would seem very money oriented if they all of a sudden began selling his paintings so it’s very admirable that they respect who he was and what he wanted. I think a museum owned by them would be very cool but I wouldn’t be sure how’d they run it

  • Why BUY a Bob Ross... when you can paint one yourself? I believe THAT is what the spirit of Bob's work was all about. Not about his paintings, but your painting it too... Bob shared his work in a way that he was your friend having an enjoyable afternoon, evening, morning, painting a picture with friends who are following along. If you ask me... i'd like to see the works of those who sat and painted along with him...

  • Not to take away from Bob Ross but William Alexander aka Bill Alexander was teaching the wet-on-wet oil painting technique on television long before Bob Ross. Bill Alexander had his own TV show similar but before Bobs, he taught Bob and they were once friends. Bob gave full credit to Alexander for teaching him to paint. Check out Bill Alexander on DE-visions and be fascinated, Check out Who taught Bob Ross wet on wet? On Google. Fascinating stuff indeed. Just some more history about Bob And Bill that wasn't really brought to light in this video. I loved and still do love a good old sit down to watch Bob Ross and his huge paint brush style.

  • How ironic, US CIA infiltrators' search to destroy Bob Ross and his positive portayal of an American capitalist white male ultimately incentivized his preservation to the point of purchasing his entire catalogue and honoring it in historic museums. American Capitalism wins again!
