So, the Bob Ross showing is happening in Penticton. My dad, brother and I are going to that today! It’s a nice day in the Okanagan for a drive. It’s only supposed to hit 28° today, which is nice since Monday is supposed to hit 35+° for at least a week…

Accidentally got here an hour and a half early. So, Denny’s for breakfast I guess. It’s tons safer here than in Kelowna right now, so I’m not overly worried. The poor staff here are clearly overworked. And I swear, the next person that pulls a “Karen” of decides being racist is fun, I’m going to punch them.

A real, like I could touch it, Bob Ross painting! That is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen! I remember sitting with my grandmother watching these episodes together! I think the cutest part is that the exhibit is called “Happy Little Accidents”.

I took pictures of my favourites, but there were so many paintings! Here are some highlights!

These paintings, it’s such a unique experience to see them in person. My grandma would have loved to see them. The art gallery did a great job with placement and keeping everyone socially distancing.

That wasn’t the only exhibit on display. There was also an exhibit on video game scenes under the name of “En Game Air”. The artists for those being Connor Kenney, Clifford Kamppari-Miller and Dr. Merlin Seller. These paintings I also recognized, but that’s because I played the game they’re from. The one Zelda one I knew immediately.

Seeing video games interpreted in such a unique way was just stunning. I loved looking through and trying to guess what game they were from!

If you’re in the area, I one hundred percent recommend going and checking it out. For a donation you can get a pin for the Bob Ross exhibit. Masks are currently mandatory, which I totally understand. But otherwise, ten out of ten!

But yeah, that’s what I got to do! It was honestly awesome! And I’m glad I got to publish this in time for my grandmother’s birthday. Anyway, thanks for reading!
