Google is doing its part to distract the country from the hurricane set to pummel its eastern flank. Today visitors to the web giant’s U.S. homepage are greeted with a Google Doodle honoring the late Bob Ross, born seventy years ago today. The fuzzy-haired host of PBS’s The Joy of Painting promised—in a soothing voice—that “All you need is the desire to make beautiful things happen on canvas.” His “wet-on-wet technique” armed amateurs with a two-inch brush and plenty of encouragement to daub snow-peaked mountains and “happy trees” onto canvases pre-soaked with liquid paint. “Within one hour of touching the brush to canvas for the first time, my students have a total, complete painting,” Ross told The New York Times in 1991. “I really believe that if you practice enough you could paint the ‘Mona Lisa’ with a two-inch brush.”
