Everyone seems to love Bob Ross. After all, what’s not to love? He’s sweet, understanding, and just wants everyone to try their best. The team here at Stickman Painting Studio is no exception. So, we thought we’d share ten quotes from Bob Ross that we’re absolutely nowhere short of in love with.
These quotes are not only great advice for painting but they’re just generally excellent as life advice in general. Bob Ross always knows the right thing to say to make you feel a little bit better. a little bit brighter, and a lot bit happier.
“In painting, you have unlimited power. You have the ability to move mountains. You can bend rivers. But when I get home, the only thing I have power over is the garbage.”
“Look around. Look at what we have. Beauty is everywhere—you only have to look to see it.”
“It’s hard to see things when you are too close. Take a step back and look.”
“You need the dark in order to show the light.”
“Talent is a pursued interest. Anything that you’re willing to practice, you can do.”
“We don’t laugh because we feel good, we feel good because we laugh.”
“Just go out and talk to a tree. Make friends with it.”
“This is your world. You’re the creator. Find freedom on this canvas. Believe, that you can do it, ‘cuz you can do it.”
“The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe.”
And, of course, who can forget the best one of all? I’m sure you already know which one it’s going to be. But, how could we leave it out?
“There are no mistakes, just happy accidents.”
