A DIY couples costume tribute to my all time favorite artist, Bob Ross. Bob taught me how to paint and form my own techniques… that there are no mistakes, only happy accidents, and that the secret to doing anything is believing that you can.

I started following Bob Ross on PBS when I was 7 years old so when this couples costume idea came up we just had to try it out! If you don’t know who Bob Ross is YouTube The Joy Of Painting and be amazed!

My husband was such a great sport letting me paint his face and helping to glue a fake beard to his wife for a day…but it was worth it… Thank you Bob for all the inspiration in my artistic career!
