There’s no doubt that Bob Ross is an iconic American figure—it seems like nearly everyone knows who he is whether they’re artists or not.
With this poll, however, I wanted to find out what all of you (who are primarily artists) think about him. I’ve always found it an interesting topic because in some art circles he’s revered, while in others he’s definitely not.
So far the results are fairly concrete: the majority who have voted think that Bob Ross was a good and kind person, and I’d certainly agree with that, regardless of any thoughts on his teaching methods or painting style.
I imagine that trend will continue even as more votes come in, but please feel free to vote for yourself if you haven’t already.
