By now it might be safe to consider myself an accomplished painter. How did I get my start? It was the early 90s and I tuned in to watch the legendary Bob Ross on a black-and-white TV with bad reception. While I don’t have a luxurious afro and nor do I wear my shirts unbuttoned to mid-chest, one Bob Ross-ism stuck with me forever; the notion of happy accidents. I still make them and it’s exhilarating every single time! That’s why I was thrilled to see this new LEGO creation by Jim Jo titled The Joy of Painting inspired by Bob Ross’s show. It features an array of paintbrushes, palate, paint tubes, a palate knife to scrape in those heavenly mountains and a water jar already tainted with a lovely sky-blue color.
I admire that not every tube is in perfect condition; a well-loved tube of paint can get bent quite out of shape with use. That yellow frog gave me a chuckle indeed!
The broom inserted into the LEGO brush looks just like brush bristles loaded with paint. It makes excellent use of the Fabuland Broom.
The beautiful little “happy accident” for me though, is how when you pull a brush through similar colors, then apply it to the canvas and watch the cool surprises unfold. The multi-colored pteranodon wing illustrates that quite nicely.
