“Happy Little Trees” Contemporary artists respond to the legacy of television painter Bob Ross. (Cover art by Tom Bagshaw)
I had the idea of doing a tribute show to the legacy of television painter Bob Ross for a couple of years. Talking to the good people at Screaming Sky Gallery in Portland Oregon, things worked out and here it is! For many kids growing up in the 1980s and 90s who had access to PBS (Public Broadcasting TV station), Bob Ross’s weekly Joy of Painting show was one of the earliest exposure to seeing someone actually paint. Now artists of that generation are grown up and producing their own art.
I invited some of these amazingly talented people to respond to their memories of Bob Ross in their own style, whether it’s illustrative, traditional, graphic, urban, modern, or beyond, and asked them to take the idea where every it leads. And it’s lead them to some very interesting places.
If you can make it to Portland please join us Sept 27th at Screaming Sky Gallery
1416 NE Alberta Street Portland, OR 97211
Or catch the show on the gallery site at
Contributing artists include:

I got things set up to timelapse record the painting process about 1/3 of the way into the piece. The music is something I did a few years ago. Timelapse image capture was every 20 seconds. The painting took something over 30 hours to finish.
