Although Bob Ross passed away 20 years ago, many people fondly remember his show on public television, The Joy of Painting. Ross had a soft, rather hypnotic voice. His belief that anyone can paint was contagious.
Within the past week, an old Joy of Painting segment, "Shades of Grey," has resurfaced on Facebook, and is now available on YouTube. The amazing thing about this video is that it shows that color blindness need not hold one back. Watch!
