The New York Times video "Where Are All the Bob Ross Paintings? We found them." has won the Emmy award for  "Outstanding New Approaches: Arts, Lifestyle and Culture.

Produced in early in 2019 and released on the New York Times website, the 10 minute documentary chronicles one man's search for the original Bob Ross paintings.

Bob painted over 1,000 landscapes for the television show "The Joy of Painting" and the whereabouts of those paintings has since become somewhat of an internet mystery.

Join over 10 million viewers and discover what really did happen to all of those paintings.

Monopoly is notorious for causing family tiffs, but not every version of the classic board game has to be so intense. If you’re more into “happy little trees” than you are collecting real estate, perhaps you'll enjoy the Bob Ross edition of the game. Hasbro Pulse recently released this creative iteration of Monopoly centered around the American painter, art instructor, and television host. The challenge? To buy, sell, and trade works of art from Ross’s iconic TV series, The Joy of Painting.

“Every day’s a good day when you paint.”  —Bob Ross (1942–1995)

Staring at the empty canvas on the easel in front of me, I couldn’t understand how this—nothing—might somehow transform into even a rough approximation of the Bob Ross painting we were using as a model. That painting was classic Bob Ross: a snowy landscape bursting with color, a world of glimmering trees and vibrant shrubs around a slick icy pond. Gazing at it evoked that feeling you get sitting by a fire on a crisp, cold night. No way I could make anything like that.

I was in a room on the side of a big-box craft store in the suburbs north of Dallas, about to start a class taught by John Fowler, a Bob Ross–certified instructor—which means that he spent three weeks in Florida learning the wet-on-wet painting technique Ross employed on television. A tall, bespectacled man in his 60s, with a light beard and a deep voice and soothing cadence reminiscent of Ross himself, John explained that he has a few things in common with the puffy-haired painter. They both spent many years in the Air Force, for example, and both retired with the rank of master sergeant. I’d learn he also uses some Bob Ross vernacular, sprinkling instructions with expressions like “We don’t make mistakes, we just have happy accidents.”
