In “Blaze of Color,” Bob Ross manipulates light to give life to what started out as a black canvas. Though Bob Ross uses paints and brushes to create a beautiful landscape, it is the words spoken simultaneously with each stroke that tells the story of his creation. The work itself is proof of the journey, but it is the journey itself that defines the work. The finished product is a testament to the true meaning of possibility. Bob Ross used gentle words and soft spoken encouragement to encourage and direct viewers to practice or “play with it” so that one can achieve “unbelievable things” once turned “loose on the world.” With the use of gentle persuasion and thoughtful brush strokes, Bob Ross inspires viewers to fully embrace one’s passion. Imagine it, visualize it, then do it.
