Watch the late Bob Ross paint this happy picture of Florida

Posted By on Tue, Aug 30, 2016 at 1:41 PM

A classic video of the late Daytona Beach native and celebrated public television artist Bob Ross emerged yesterday on YouTube

Originally aired in November of 1990, the video is classic Bob Ross. While he creates a Florida masterpiece called "Florida's Glory," the PBS legend mentions happy little sand dunes, happy little trees and all the other happy landscape features that consistently emerge in a Ross original. 

Even if you don't watch this video, at least listen to it in the background. His voice was amazing. 

Earlier this week, NPR's Morning Edition debuted a special on Bob Ross titled "The Real Bob Ross: Meet The Meticulous Artist Behind Those Happy Trees," where it was uncovered that his hair was actually straight and he hated his perm. I highly recommend you check it out. 

Ross died on July 4, 1995, and is buried at the Woodlawn Memorial Park in Gotha, Florida.
