Want to Buy a Bob Ross Painting? You Can’t. (And Here’s Why.)

“Ever make mistakes in Life??.. Let’s make them birds.. yeah they’re birds now.”

During the course of his television career, Bob Ross painted more than 1000 paintings. But you never see them for sale. You can buy Bob Ross paint sets and even a waffle maker that makes waffles that look like Bob Ross — “Pour in the batter, lower the lid, and before you know it, there’s Bob Ross ready for butter and syrup.” — but good luck buying one of his actual paintings. In this charming little video from the NY Times, we learn where all of Bob Ross’s paintings are, meet the paintings’ custodians, and discover why the art isn’t for sale. — Via the otherwise execrable Kottke

[This one goes out to my brother Jeff who uses Bob Ross TV programs when he has trouble falling asleep.]

PS: In three days the video above has been seen more than 3 million times. Even though he’s been dead for decades, Bob Ross still is more popular than CNN and MSNBC. Not bad for a Mountain and Tree Man.

    Thanks, I needed that. I can tell you why the increased popularity, people are looking for light and goodness in the world that has become dark and cynical.

    “The whole world, now is seeing what I saw.”
    This. This is my fondest hope for my current project. I want to be able to speak this sentence.
    I met Pete Hampton when I was 11 years old back in 1963. He was a wildly eccentric, some would say mad artist, and showman. He was a regional painter. His work is all about the Puente Hills of Southern California. He was my oldest friend. Going back to my childhood, I have always believed that Pete would one day be recognized as one of The Greats. He died last year, sick, broke and alone. I am photographing, cataloguing, and blogging about his life’s work for the Hampton family. As I said, I’ve always had an almost religious conviction that Pete Hampton’s work would one day be recognized. It has become my job to make that happen.

    Growing up the only thing to watch on TV if your were sick and home from school was three channels of soap operas or PBS. Bob Ross was the best option hands down.

    They make it look like a warehouse with a bare bones staff, but his brand is represented by real honest-to-goodness art suppliers.

    A very good communicator!

    He was even rather popular amongst us Brits too.
