Bob Ross

I'm sure a lot of people dismiss Bob Ross (here as a LEGO fig by TheMooseFigs), but his PBS show The Joy of Painting introduced people across the country to, well, the joy of painting from 1983 to 1994. He had a lightning-fast style of putting paint on the canvas and it amazingly always came out as some sort of landscape. His most famous catchphrase is "happy little trees". He came across as a really nice guy, and I always thought he would be wonderful to spend time with. He died of complications from lymphona in 1995, but you can still watch old episodes of the show on the official YouTube channel
