    Ross is very calm and it seems like his motto/view is to to jump right in with no hesitation and that nothing is a mistake which I think in a way is right. Nothing is a mistake, only a learning period. “Just let it go. I don’t know exactly where …

     In “Blaze of Color,” Bob Ross manipulates light to give life to what started out as a black canvas. Though Bob Ross uses paints and brushes to create a beautiful landscape, it is the words spoken simultaneously with each stroke that tells the story of his creation. The work itself …

    Creativity is such an elusive thing and the process of creating anything (be it a song, a painting, etc.) can sometimes be a mystery even to the creator. I find that the best inspiration smacks you in the face out of nowhere and half the time my favorite work was …
