Modern painter and telivison teacher. Known for his large, white-man 'fro, punctual 30 minute painting sessions, and soothing voice. Often refers to the inanimate objects (trees, rocks, mountians etc.) he is painting as real and lonely, whereby out of pity he will paint another inanimate object as a 'friend' to the first. Paints against an all black background and is often shown on PBS in the wee hours of the morning.
"My botany Professor talks exactly like Bob Ross. He keeps calling flowers and trees 'happy' and placing them near each other because he claims they will become friends. And cause of his voice, I have yet to stay awake for an entire lecture."
