The Real Bob Ross: Meet The Meticulous Artist Behind Those Happy Trees

We're not going to bury the lede here: Bob Ross' hair was actually straight. Just ask his longtime business partner, Annette Kowalski, who knew Ross better than anyone — he had just gotten out of the Air Force, and was unsuccessfully trying to make a living as a painter, she says.

"He got this bright idea that he could save money on haircuts. So he let his hair grow, he got a perm, and decided he would never need a haircut again," Kowalski explains.

Many a day I would be partaking of the green while watching Bob.
I bet if I ever purchased all the painting gear, etc and "meditated" again, I could channel my inner Ross.

Dude smoked more little happy trees than he painted.
