Bob Ross was a professional canvas painter and art instructor. Born and raised in Florida had a relatively normal child. He spends most of it working with his father who was a carpenter. At the age of 18, Bob Ross insisted in the Untied States Air Force where he first served as a medical records technician. Over time he earns the rank of master sergeant. Upon leaving the military Bob began a career as a painter. He started and created his own tv series titled “The Joy of Painting” on the PBS network. The show ran for an incredible 31 season with over 403 episodes. Bob was forced to end the show due to an illness he was battling. He, unfortunately, passed away on July 4th, 1995 😔
