Enjoy More Than 400 of Bob Ross's Happy Little Paintings in One Place

By the end of Season 31 in 1994, The Joy of Painting managed to rack up a substantial collection of landscape paintings. As Design Taxi reports, thanks to the diligent work of fan Felix Auer, Bob Ross lovers can now peruse the whole series.

His website Two Inch Brush—named after Ross's brush of choice for the wet-on-wet technique—is an unofficial database that organizes all 403 paintings from the show by season and episode.

Fans can sift through all the happy paintings by episode, colors used, and guest painters. If a viewer finds a work he or she would like to try painting, each page has a link to the episode on YouTube, along with a list of materials needed. The website also offers up a page dedicated to tools and paints branded with Ross's face and a blog to learn more about the show and painting techniques.

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
