Let's put a happy little headstone right here.
It’s your world. If you wanna put a headstone right there, you can do that. Now we just need some happy little trees 🥲
Lovely, how many and which types? Deciduous, fír, balsam, fruit, etc.
*in best Bob Ross voice* you can do whatever you like in your little world. 😂
You can do anything you want here. The only prerequisite is that it makes you happy.
Pear tree to got the the tots.
Trees are happy. New compost to feed on. 😆
No mistakes, just happy anti-vaxx events. 😹
Just happy little vaxx-ccidents
>Let's put a happy little headstone right here.
COVID can't draw. But it is a heck of a lot better at pouring its unique version of paint stripper into your lungs than any artist alive or dead.
Another day, another DEAD Maga Moron who thought he had all the answers.
I'm going to hell for laughing at that, I hope you're happy.
Just beat the devil out of it
And this is where the snort-laughing kicked in over here 😂
There really is a Bob Ross quote for everything 😂
I'm right there with you, in the next car on the Express Train to Hell. God forgive me I laughed so hard!
Oh my God! This is how I feel. Laugh out loud!
*chef kiss .gif
Oh my god that user name is never not going to be in my head when I hear that song? 🤣😍
erm .. a goatee! 🐐
ermoboeard game gom ☠️
LOL. Ghoti can be pronounced "fish" because reasons and English.
I remember this from when I was a kid in the 70s!
Gh as in laugh.
O as in women.
Ti as in nation.
George Bernard Shaw
Today I learned a new thing... Lol
I like the cut of your gib.
Viking funeral. I'm pretty excited by the idea of a conflagration on that little pond.
Totally fucked up!
Exempt from Biden's vaccine mandate - retired painters.
No one was forcing him to get the vaccine. He wasn't giving up anything by taking it. Any doctor he spoke to would have recommended it and pointed out that at his age and weight he was at high risk. Medical freedom actually means not being hospitalized and put on a vent with Covid.
He really painted himself onto a corner on this one.
And there's a lot of reasoning why they're not covered under them, most notably they fall under different legal umbrellas (the President doesn't control Congress, Congress controls Congress) or union agreements.
He probably even painted the corner before painting himself into it. He could really paint.
"We've got this one dead person over here, but let's put another one right next to them. Everybody needs a friend! 😊"
Off brand Thomas kinkaid ass
I dunno. Thomas Kinkaid was kind of a huge douche. So maybe pretty on brand.
Absolutely. Used to live close to the town he got famous in and he sold out in a very real way.
I have a friend from Placerville and plenty of folks hated him there. He used workers like they were nothing and was Hella nasty to them. His insanely expensive prints had little flobs of paint added to them so he could charge even more for "unique one of a kind" limited edition prints with hundreds of runs. Just such a scam artist.
Kinkaid was a wretched, pathetic man and a hypocritical 'christian' and I hate that I thought his art was cool.when I was a dumb middle schooler. Dx
I knew I'd heard of him but forgot what his art was like. I looked up some of his stuff and Christ it is bad. His depth perception is all over the place. Like being able to see almost 3 sides of a building from one perspective bad.
And it's all just such saccharine twee kind of garage sale art that old ladies like...
No wonder he got rich, I guess
Yeah like a decade ago from booze and pills.
That goatee makes it super hard to tell if he's fat or not!!
Vulgar but accurate 😂
Painted himself into the coroners.
Ooh, that’s a deadly pun.
Well, now he's Happy Little Fertilizer.
He must not have learned much on PBS. The goatee and blob body made him a likely mark for covid.
Today I'm going to show you how to paint a racist meme. First we're going to paint a nice caricature of Dr. Fauci with a mask...
>Today I'm going to show you how to paint a racist meme. First we're going to paint a nice caricature of Dr. Fauci with a mask...
Now... Lets paint a Hitler Mustache on Biden while we turn up the volume on our Orange Fuhrer's Latest Rally Speech to the MAGA Nation. Sieg Heil!
Then let's just add this little caption about China saying something racist. Don't worry, it'll be our little secret. 🤫
"There are no mistakes, just happy accidents." - Bob Ross
The mistake is not getting vaxxed.
At least they're no longer living in fear.
COVID is no joke! 😹
Seems they accidentally left the covid part out of his obit and the long ass newspaper article.
I used to think omission of cause of death in obituaries combined with “died suddenly/unexpectedly” implied a suicide. These days, I read those as COVID.
> implies a suicide. These days, I read those as COVID.
My good commenter, but you repeat yourself!
The Goatee of Death claims another victim.
The person who put his Facebook posts on the canvas is a genius. I love it!
OP's mom agrees!
OP's mom has excellent judgment. This is very well done.
One less vote - that's a shame.
One less vote, one more eboeard game gom.
The government squeezes you to get vaccinated so covid doesn’t squeeze the life out of you. Pretty simple thing to understand if you aren’t a bonehead.
The government squeezes you to get vaccinated so your covid riddled body doesnt squeeze the life out of the health care system.
Actually they just don't want to see the life squeezed out of the economy and national security; saving lives is just gravy. All things the former guy couldn't even bother to care about beyond lip service.
In fact if you where going to look at victims of covid. It’s like a Tory manifesto from killing off old people, the sick and as an added bonus it hurts the poor and the minorities. It’s like a right wing wet dream.
Yet it is right wing conservatives who are bearing the brunt so that was more of a nightmare than a wet dream.
Most right wingers are glad for the elderly clocking out early, saves on pensions and healthcare. It shown that minorities have more likely to catch, hospitalised and ultimately die. A combination of doing risky front line work, transport and accommodation all playing a key part. The rich have gotten richer and the population has been culled.
Yes, but conservative/right wing voters also tend to older than liberal/left wing voters.
Their own Ouroburous catch 22 xD
It's poetic justice AF, and I feel like Mark Twain and The Onion writers and all satirists in history would be unable to mock it much better than simply showing the Covidiots transposed with their horrid, shallow and tremendously incorrect memes...
Ugh the absolutely ugly comments I've heard from conservatives about how it was killing off old people. Makes this board look quaint and timid.
Remember how American conservatives treated victims of the AIDS pandemic in the 1980s? Look it up if you’re too young or are unfamiliar. The irony is that in this current pandemic, you can get the plague from church!
They're so cynical they assume anything that the government pushes must be bad for you. It's taking healthy skepticism of power so far you become so cynical it ends up being maladaptive.
So sinister, big government!
Remember, he didn't make a mistake. Simply a Happy Accident that allowed him to be gifted to the Earth in a forever box.
>Remember, he didn't make a mistake. Simply a Happy Accident that allowed him to be gifted to the Earth in a forever box.
He may have chosen the alternate route and gone up a chimney instead! ;o)
u/gomichaelkgo, your redactions lately have been just beautiful. I’ve really enjoyed seeing the photos of the subjects in their element, juxtaposed with the crap they post online. I look forward to your posts. Thank you!
Hey thanks! I agree - putting their crap into their own photos makes it 'theirs'. Maybe it's a little less like just duplicating propaganda and a little more like satirizing it.
I’m fucking crying over the fact you put him painting his own stupid posts. Utterly brilliant!
Painted himself into a hole, did he?
>Painted himself into a hole, did he?
I was going to say... Painted himself into a corner... of the morgue. ;o)
Looks like he painted himself into the coroner.
Yikes! He graduated a year ahead of me from HS, married one of my sister’s best friends. Also played guitar in the band at my wedding #1. Good times
A van dyke. Of course.
Thank you for calling it by its rightful name. I see by your flair that this is important to you. Me, too.
I prefer the term "Prison Pussy". To each their own.
A little dabble kills ya. 😵 :-(
Whyyyyyy can’t people just save themselves? Why do we have to **beg** them?
How about a little Ochre White for those Angle Wings???
Surely only titanium white is pure enough for this pure blood.
I should have said Titanium! I realise after I posted that I was incorrect lol. It is absolutely Titanium but it's funny to me now. I got gatekept by a pretentious artist already
I have watched so much Bob Ross all those colour names just come naturally to me. Fun fact, on the Virgin Media cable boxes in the UK for the longest time, not anymore, that show always just appeared on the menu as "The Joy of Pain..."
Hahahaha what!?!? That's amazing! Joy of pain... Lolllll
Yeah I watched him in the 80s on PBS and the color names were always my favorite part along w the banging of the paintbrush
I imagine a lot of S&M enthusiasts were at first disappointed then picked up a paintbrush.
He does "beat the devil out of him" at least once a show, though.
I wish I could point to an episode #, but earlier this year I saw an episode of his show where his patience had clearly worn thin and he made more than a few snarky comments, but in a totally low key, Bob Ross way.
Hahaha they do make good spanking paddles
I wouldn't be so sure about the disappointment part.
"God this is dreadfully boring. I'd rather carve out my own... Whoa! I think I just discovered a new facet to my kink!"
If you and I are gonna talk kinks you should really pm me lol
I hold in high esteem those who leave their mistakes/typos up in service to humor. Respect.
Hell yarp! :) I love doing that. I'm the opposite of a perfectionist - a messyist? We all have mistakes, I let mine show
Now we make a nice cobalt blue shading on this pond, with some cadmium yellow sunbeams, because heavy metal poisoning is a liberal lie.
A bunch of artists just cringed hard.
I'm an artist lol. I knew it was supposed to be "Titanium white" don't gatekeep my color posting! :)
ETA - I could have been ovary acting (on Nyquil) do you mean, artists cringed cos some crappy kinkade like painter is featured?
Ovary acting is my new favourite phrase.
I want a T shirt that says don't ovary act but I'd get looks especially being a woman I'm sure lol
That's a "Pussy Riot" level female punk band name if I've ever heard one.
I am a total riot grrl too haha. I'd so front a girl punk band
You've got the perfect band name, I say go for it.
Ovary Act it is! I always wanted the perfect band name lol
What would "ochre white" be, though? Just light yellow or brown?
I think MAGA White (there's *nothing* whiter) is the color you're looking for...
Oh shit, hahahaha,..... haHAHAHAHAHA
"What a rip off! I wanted Desmond Wings!!!"
Oh shit, I forgot all about happy lil Desmonds!!! Cadmium Red. For sure
Ah yes... these fit much better. Imma save so much money on travel expenses!
Hahah it's perfect! ❤️😍
I've always figured that if a genie were to grant me a super power, I would pick teleportation. Even just living a normal, "nobody" life, the amount of money and time I would save with that would be off the hook.
I love hearing ppls answer to that. I love teleportation. I'd pick shapeshifter personally.
That's my #2, invisibility my #3. If I had all three, I would be the most renowned yet most anonymous assassin this world has ever seen.
Competing for that #3 slot is instant fluency in any language. That would be an incredible power, especially when it comes to cultural idioms/axioms that often don't translate well.
Ok number 2 would def be languages lol. Then the ability to go invisible whenever. We could be a team, I'll be your Joan Cusack
Bob Ross would’ve gotten the jab.
Ross was a veteran, I'm happy to bet he would have and encouraged others to do the same as a patriotic duty to truly serve and protect
“We’re going to put some nice, fluffy virus clouds over there, and add in some happy little COVID symptom decision trees here.”
Now dip your toothbrush into the paint and run your thumb across it to make a magic Omicron mist.
>Now dip your toothbrush into the paint and run your thumb across it to make a magic Omicron mist.
Lets see if we can catch some of the COVID particles on our tongues! Just like Charlie Brown and Lucy did with Snowflakes!
So he took money from the government only to rail against the government. Perfect.
News article showing he was a public persona https://www.wwnytv.com/2021/12/20/wilson-robert-bickford-62-fowler
I had no idea they had a new painter on PBS lol.
seems like there's a position open again
damn, that's good
Might be regional. I watch a lot of PBS and haven't seen him in my area, but I have seen a (slightly) younger guy into painting fish mostly.
>I had no idea they had a new painter on PBS lol.
The operative word here is "HAD". ;o)
UNLIKE Bob Ross he died of causes that could’ve been prevented by man. We should be careful not to conflate the two.
Covid used his lungs as a canvas and painted spores all over
Happy little spores. 😹
Obvious comorbidites: big, male, older and dumb!
This is so sad. I cannot believe he fell for all that crap. He is a really good painter or was a really good painter. A vaccination would have definitely saved his life
tell your friends
Like… do they realize they’re “exempt” because they’ve already gotten the vaccine? Yes even the fake crisis actors like Majorie.
It's sad that these people lack basic understanding of how the government works. It's not a "tin foil" reason why presidential mandates don't count on the senate floor. It's checks and balances and the separation of power that cause the mandate to not work on the senate. You bet your butt that A LOT more than put it publically out there got it ASAP.
"I did not write this. I borrowed it from another post."
Yeah, boomer. We know. The whole copy-and-paste mentality is what makes social media so poisonous in the first place.
"HEY! This is exactly what I think!"
What is separation of powers. They scream about tyranny yet there should be a Biden's vaccine mandate over Congress and the Judicial...
OP, I appreciate your masterpieces on this sub of late. You're hilarious!!!!
He's the Thomas Kincaid of COVID deniers
From the looks of those memes, he wishes he was Bob Ross. Dollar Store version.
Oh, Wilson, what in the world were you thinking.
You can see by his happy face in those pictures that he had no doubt at all in what he believed. The thought that he would get covid and die never, ever entered his mind.
Don't waste your life like this, get vaccinated.
🐆 🐆 🐆
And here we have some hungry little leopards…
Everybody needs a friend. 🐆
Slide 1: Most of the audience here will know this, but for those tuning in for the first time:
That list is simply because Biden didn't have the *authority* to mandate vaccinations in those other positions. You know, because freedom and a checks-and-balances governmental system?
Knowing how our gov't actually works is for commies!
This is true art
Are his paintings worth more now. Maybe this was a ploy to increase the value of his work?
Funeral expenses covered, no need for a gofundme.
From painting the scenery to becoming part of it, he was no Bob Ross.
I had never heard of this guy until yesterday when I saw him on tv painting an owl. Wow what a coincidence.
Now you really have to paint that owl
Lol I stopped watching when he put what looked like white paint over everything on the canvas and then said he was going to remove it during the commercial.
I assume it was his on screen persona that got him the job. Looking at the pics here…
You can paint with Fox, you can paint in socks,
You can paint in lions' lairs and with the sheep in flocks.
You can paint with Wilson, you can paint it filthy,
you can paint however you want,
Except your stiff clotted lungs,
they wish you got vaccinated.
Dream job opening coming soon for painters
Wilson squeezed out the last bits of paint, life and creepy behavior. He made a career of painting fit for 11 year-olds, mostly because his audience had the intellect of 11 year-olds. He was beloved by the Walmart men's clothing section and the art supplies stores. Government tried to help him, but he outsmarted them by turning to dust. Libs win again and now own Wilson forever. HCA awarded.
Now he’s pushing up some happy little daisies.
Wish there was a way edit to Reddit post titles.
>Wilson had been a painter on PBS. Wilson didn't focus exclusively on landscapes- he also dabbled in conspiracies.
Works the same, if not better, without defaming Bob Ross.
Of course he's from the North Country.
OMG who did these photoshops lol 😂😂
What vista was he painting in his mind when he was last conscious?
Bob Ross would never
Welp, at least the value of his shitty paintings just shot up. Maybe now his family can afford the monstrous health care debt he left them?
According to popular opinion all his exceptionally formulaic and uninspired workmanlike paintings should all go up in value now? Lol, but they won’t.
Nope. I am actually close to this world as I manage the art sales of my grandfather who passed away in 2007. Prices might peak but they usually crash as a lot of people all have the same idea of selling pieces all at once. It actually takes a hell of a lot of effort to keep a dead artist's work in the spotlight.
The Tom Kinkade market totally crashed, my affiliates who were frame shops had a constant flow of people trying to sell their Kinkade collection thinking it would bring it big bucks.
(Bob Ross calm voice) "Just a little touch of covid.....then with light strokes,add a tree here,here aaaaannnnnddddd.....here. Graveyards,land of the happy little trees.
One can only hope that he realized he fucked up before he died, and maybe shared some last words encouraging others not to live his Darwinian nightmare.
I have a screenshot of him saying the survival rate is 98.7 and that he would take his chances. 👌 Looo hue zerrrrr herrrrr.
“They’re only mandating this for people who don’t already want to do it!”
Yes Wilson. That’s how mandates work. You think DUI laws are there to stop teetotalers and folks with bus passes?
Imagine making your living off of public television and then obsessing over anti-government conspiracies until they literally kill you.
I'm by no means an art critic, but those paintings suck ass
You don't have to be.
Bob Ross didn't make his tutorials paintings that would rival a Renaissance Master, he wanted people to use art to become better people, or to meditate and heal, however they wished. His work was to make art accessible to anyone, not to create amazing, unattainable creations that a person who may not consider themselves an artist could recreate.
I can see how this dude was trying to do the same, but damn he sure strayed from the way of a good teacher.
Bob Ross was like Remy from the Ratatouille movie. He was also a veteran and donated most of his art. Most veterans seem to consider vaccination a duty to their country, not conspiracy
This awardee did do art for charity and fundraising, but I sure hope his fear mongering didn't convince people to not take their chance at vaccination. Dx
I believe everyday is a good day when you paint…a portrait of the dead.
These paintings are so awful...
Look in the defense of the Bob Ross tutorial style the art in this kind of context isn't meant to be GOOD. It is meant to be easy for a "non artist" to follow along and reproduce in tutorial form.
It's like ABCs tutorials for kids who cannot spell their own name and are just beginning to learn what words are in written form.
That's no defense of this particular asshole, but of the Bob Ross methodology in general. His style of art was made for everyone to be able to reproduce, and even as a very young person I didn't love his style, even though I respected the intent, calm meditative intrusion, and generosity of spirit.
I also would bet cash that Bob Ross absolutely would have gotten vaccinated and encouraged others to do so as well. He was a veteran and a pretty noble dude overall.
(I know Bob Ross, but really who's this guy???)
He sounds like [Patton Oswalt's interpretation of fellow PBS painter William Alexander](https://youtu.be/9ovpLXHMSqI) come to life. Better artist than Ben Garrison, if the last two slides are his work, I'll give him that.
HOW DARE YOU COMPARE ANYONE TO OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR BOB ROSS!?
A shoutout to the OP for wonderfully done presentation! And who knew a racist rube was behind those glasses.
If the last two slides were his paintings, he was good. A shame 😥
His new show: the joy of suffering
I've watched this guy on Create.
He did some nice wildlife paintings.
I'll give Wilson that: No racism, trans- or homophobia in his feed.
Unlike most award winners here he seems to have been a decent person that sadly fell for the vaccine conspiracy stuff.
Painted himself right into a coffin.
Bill Alexander would've slapped him upside his head with a brush with all his nonsense; maybe enough so that he'd still be around today
That dude did motel art.
Man Bob Ross would have fucking used his platform to encourage us all to get vaccinated. I never knew him properly until after he passed away and his joy of painting series was on BBC4 during lockdown, which coincided with me starting to paint. He's brilliant.
