Google gives a tribute to TV show host Bob Ross. Bob Ross has taught PBS viewers to paint landscapes, portraying mountains, trees, clouds and around is those happily living people.
Google’s logo limned the soft-spoken and hairy Ross holding is patent colour platter and his paintbrush. The beauty of doodle was enhanced by the squirrel that quietly took its place on his shoulders.
Also the creative developers had posted a low caps g on the canvas which decked with mountains in the background. Ross himself served as ‘G’ in Google whereas other letters creped in light gray colour.
Though I adore the creative side of the doodle but surely I cannot digest the squirrel. So why squirrel? The answer is still more amusing, Ross was born on 29th November 70 years ago in 1942. Ross had a special affection for injured and abandoned squirrels. Also these small critters had even made given small appearances in “The Joy of Painting” through the years. If you hear the words of the viewers of his show, they just say- the smoothness with which his colours flow, similarly soother his words. And he just transforms in a mew world that says mistakes are “happy little accidents”.
"Traditionally, art has been for the select few," Ross reported these lines in his 1990 interview. "We have been brainwashed to believe that Michelangelo had to pat you on the head at birth. Well, we show people that anybody can paint a picture that they're proud of. It may never hang in the Smithsonian, but it will certainly be something that they'll hang in their home and be proud of. And that's what it's all about."
Ross had put-off his show when he was diagnosed with lymphoma. After which he expired on July 4, 1995.
Interestingly, the Orlando, Florida, used his short-form painting technique for his days when he served U.S. He utilised his work breaks for creating these artistic views so that he may later on sell them.
Together with the TV shows Ross also add his name in the list of art suppliers.
So, as Google gave a hands-up tribute to Ross for his words and his paintings, each individual can do the same by giving your life a different meaning. And as Ross quotes “As my son Steve says, just 'smoosh' it in there. It's not a real word, but people seem to know what it means.”
