Tribute to Bob Ross

Like millions of others this morning, I moused over today's Google image to see who was being honored with one of their ubiquitous doodles.

It was for artist Bob Ross on what would have been his 70th birthday except for the sad fact that he passed away in 1995.

What artist doesn't know who Bob Ross is/was, at least in this part of the world?

You must remember his show on PBS in the 1980s where in each program he would show all of us how to draw and paint.

Anyway, I also saw on my Google news crawler a link to a blog by Michael Cavna in The Washington Post. It's a fine tribute to the painter who, for many, was probably the closest thing they ever got to an art lesson.

It was very popular. Here's the link:
