Even decades after his death, landscape painter and super-chill art teacher Bob Ross remains one of public television’s biggest celebrities. In celebration of the 35th anniversary of his TV debut, Universe Publishing is putting out a full-fledged monograph honoring the man who “managed to take over the art world with his army of happy little trees,” as Paul Ruditis writes in his introduction to Bob Ross: The Joy of Painting, the new coffee table book out October 10.
Below are a few of the masterpieces it features, starring just as many happy little trees and clouds as you’d expect.
If you're truly too anxious to put paint to canvas, though, you can always get started with The Bob Ross Coloring Book, which features some of the same artwork. Bob Ross: The Joy of Painting is available for pre-order for $30 on Amazon.
