Hello everyone!! I was diagnosed of Genital Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) in 2016 and I have tried all possible means to get cured, i even visited Some Hospital where they gave me some drugs like Favier, Overtax and Valtrex which are very expensive but all to no avail, until i saw a post in a health forum about a herbal doctor AMOS from West Africa who prepare herbal medicine to cure all kind of diseases including Herpes Simplex Virus, at first i doubted if it was real but decided to give it a try, when i contact this herbal doctor via his email he sent me a herbal medicine through UPS delivery service, when i received this herbal medicine, he gave me step by instructions on how to apply it, when i applied it as instructed i was totally cured of this deadly disease within 14 days of usage, if you are suffering of this diseases you can as well Contact this great herbal doctor via his email; drehikioya85226@gmail.com call or WhatsApp DR AMOS HIV/AIDS,DIABETES,CANCER,HEPATITIS ABC,DARIA ,Chronic, Arthritis.

Hmm, odd they would speak about how bob ross has been so close to so many people's lives, but they would hoard all of his painting in boxes? I'm glad they were at least able to get them to a museum so others could enjoy, cause I would think Bob would have disliked his work being hoarded away like that and not on display where people can appreciate the beauty of it like he always showed us... the beauty in nature and the fun in painting...

It wasn’t called the “Joy of Painting” for nothin. The man seemed genuine when he filmed his painting steps and skills. Not interested in selling his work. I feel like that would be selling his soul, in my opinion.

Never heard of him. His paintings are no different than 1000s of other outdoor/landscape painters. Some of them probably use his techniques. Paintings like this are readily available everywhere. Often even your local Good Will.

I understand bob ross' paintings are really good but why do people want paintings specifically from him? There are other paintings out there just as good. If they want to buy it for his name and because hes famous well then they need to work on themselves.

My mom started to paint after learning lessons watching Bob Ross's paintings on TV in 1988. My mom didn't have any art's lessons before, she recorded some shows from her VHS tapes 😅 Too bad Bob Ross lost his life to cancer, way too young. 😪😭 Good thing my parents and I still watch his reruns shows on some channels now. He still gives old fans motivation to draw/paint .
