Steve Ross Overview
If you were an adult, a teenager, or even a kid in the 80s, you would have probably been familiar with Steve Ross’s father, Bob Ross. Bob was the star of the television painting show The Joy of Painting. Being a former Airforce Drill Sergeant, Bob attracted so many viewers around the world because of how unusually peacefully he did paintings. While painting, he would coach viewers with his soothing silky voice, making them feel relaxed and, thus, feeling the joy of painting. Bob did this for a long time until his death in 1995.
Later on, his son Steve Ross took on his own painting shows on his own social media platform. Steve appeared in a number of Bob’s painting shows, 13 episodes to be exact. One of the most memorable is the last episode of the first season called Final Reflections. In this episode, the young Steve Ross reads questions from the viewers, which Bob answers. The episode turned out to be a major success. Steve would then paint in some of the episodes of The Joy of Painting.
Several years after Bob’s death, Steve broadcasted painting shows on Tumblr, which catapulted him to further stardom while resurrecting the Ross’s painting tradition. In his live stream videos on Tumblr, he showcased a style that was different from his dad’s. While his dad was cool and composed, Steve was quite an amazing talker with a lot of sexual innuendoes. He would make statements that had double meanings such as: “It’s getting bigger all the time. Oh no, it’s huge. Look at that, it’s a monster!” “Pound it into the brush real good,” and “It can be dirty, it doesn’t have to be clean. Oh yeah, sure, tell me more!”
