It might sound unlikely, but The Joy of Painting – a kitsch, gentle show from the 80s which returns to TV this week – is the ultimate antidote to the trials of the modern world

Vice’s TV channel has always been a decidedly patchy thing to watch. For every truly brilliant show it has – Action Bronson’s F***, That’s Delicious remains a contender for the best food show going – there are dozens and dozens of tiresome hipster documentaries that can’t work out whether they’re supposed to be ironic or earnest, or how smart their audience is meant to be. What it really needs in its schedule is something completely dependable.

The good news is this isn’t far off. From today, the channel is airing two back-to-back episodes of The Joy of Painting daily. If you haven’t seen it, you might be wondering why a 30-year-old show about one man quietly painting one landscape after another in a black studio deserves so much attention. But if you have, you’ll know. The Joy of Painting was a very, very special television programme. It is something everybody needs in their lives.

With his soothing voice and demeanor, the late Bob Ross became a public television icon on the level of Big Bird with The Joy of Painting. And in recent years, a plethora of Ross merchandise has hit shelves, proving that the painter is just as relevant as ever. And in addition to all the painting kitscoloring books, and socks in his likeness on the market, you can now tuck the hirsute painter into bed with a new Bob Ross plush doll.

Plush company Bleacher Creatures has just unveiled a 10-inch soft fabric doll of Ross, complete with oil palette and signature bushy mane. And unlike some plush figures, Ross is able to stand on his own two feet.

Like many of us, I’m guilty of falling down the proverbial rabbit hole known as the internet from time to time.

On this occasion, I came across a YouTube video of regular folks (i.e., non-artists) enjoying what they called a "Bob Ross Paint Night". I had heard of The Joy of Painting author and PBS television host before but had never given him much thought. But since I’ve recently started dabbling in watercolour painting for fun and relaxation, I thought I’d give his tutorials a try (even though he used oil paints as his medium of choice).

The star piece of Monday, Jan. 13's exhibition opening was scheduled to arrive at 5 p.m. and leave at 7 p.m. Until then, there was an empty easel among the featured drawings, paintings and sculptures featured in the Transformative Power of Public Television Art Show at the Zeitgeist Arts building.

Ultimately, it arrived a little early. The small painting (year, date, circumstances unknown) was propped in a place of prominence with, fittingly, artist Mary Plaster’s larger-than-life Mr. Rogers puppet looming behind it.

There was much buzz about this rare sighting.

“What I heard is a lot of people talking, ‘Did you get a chance to see the Bob Ross?’” Larry Erickson, WDSE-WRPT’s director of engineering and operations reported the next day.
