If you are looking for a way to relax this weekend, you can listen to the soothing voice of Bob Ross as he paints. In honor of Ross’ 73rd birthday this past Thursday, Twitch decided to live stream all 403 episodes of his former PBS show The Joy of Painting . Known for his “happy trees” and “easy foothills,” users can enjoy the artist’s work during back-to-back episodes until November 6. The show aired for 11 years from January 1983 to May 1994 and now, Twitch, usually popular among the gaming community, is bringing you this live stream for a few days. This live stream marathon is also part of Twitch’s launch of their new creative category for the artist community.
Here’s how to watch the marathon:
