Happy Little Trees Bob Ross T-shirt

by on February 28, 2010

Bob Ross (rest his soul) kills it painting trees. You can’t stump him. Evergreen, dogwood, oak, maple, apple. Doesn’t matter, he’s going to be able to show you how to do it. The dirty little secret behind this show is that he makes it look totally easy with his simple easel and old school palette, but the real power comes from Bob’s afro. If you don’t have an afro, then you will never be able to paint like this. You might be able to get away with not having the beard, but the afro is crucial. Don’t even get your hopes up if you have straight hair. Maybe if you get a high end permanent, but that’s stretching it.

Maybe the closest you’re going to get to painting with such zen mastery is to wear the Happy Little Trees Bob Ross T-shirt, watch re-runs of The Joy of Painting on PBS, and moan in a deep register from the core of your being as you rock back and forth gently.

“Little birds have to have a place to put their foots.”
