(Associated Press) – When Bob Ross died of complications from cancer in 1995, he had completed about half of the paintings he planned to teach from in a 32 season of “The Joy of Painting.”

In the new series “The Joy of Painting with Nicholas Hankins: Bob Ross’ Unfinished Season,” a certified Bob Ross instructor recreates those works demonstrating wet-on-wet oil painting in 30 minutes.

Hankins has the blessing of Joan Kowalski, president of Bob Ross Inc.

Her parents and Ross co-founded the company together.

Kowalski believes Ross would be proud of the new show and their efforts to keep his legacy alive.
