Abstract "Bob Ross spent every episode of The Joy of Painting teaching generations of viewers how to paint. But, perhaps more important, he also taught us how to live. His lessons about imagination, friendship, kindness, mistakes, and finding happiness are well received-- and necessary-- now as they were during each of his twenty-two minute televised episodes. Based on Bob Ross's famed techniques, anecdotes, and iconic images, Life Lessons from Bob Ross: Be a Peaceful Cloud is a calm, mindful guide to navigating your own personal landscape. Filled with his most famous quotes and illustrated by his original paintings, this book's meditative essays, including "Blank Canvas", "Happy Little Accidents," and "Bravery Tests," are stepping stones to thinking the way Bob Ross would: you are an artist, and your life is a beautiful work of art. "I knew you could do it," Bob would tell his televised audience at the end of a challenging painting. And he was right: you can"--Page 4 of cover.
