Guy Has Awesome Bob Ross Birthday Party Where Everyone Paints a Beautiful Landscape

When soon-to-be 22-year-old Chris Nervegna was planning his birthday festivities with his friends, they came up with one particularly colorful idea: a Bob Ross painting party! As a fan of the lovable art instructor and television personality, Nervegna viewed the theme as the perfect way to celebrate his big day.

To prepare for the painterly affair, Nervegna purchased primed canvases, brushes, palette knives, and lots and lots of paint. Once it was time to celebrate, he and his party guests huddled around his television as they painted along to a screening of The Joy of Painting, Ross’ iconic PBS program. As the artist’s famously calm voice talked Nervegna and his friends through different painting techniques, they each painted their own mountainous landscape—complete, of course, with Ross’ signature “happy trees.”

Following the success of wholesome party, Nervegna shared pictures of the event on his Twitter, accompanied by a description deeming it the “BEST. DAY. EVER.” His post has since gone viral, with many admirers already planning their own Joy of Painting-themed parties. So, with this party trend now on the horizon, it’s probably a good time to break out the art supplies, brush up on your techniques, and perfect your permed ‘do!

Nervegna’s sweet and silly Bob Ross Painting Party was a total success.
