Who remembers this PBS painting instructional show? Per TVTropes, a summary:
"The Joy of Painting is a half-hour art instruction show that originally ran from 1983 to 1994. Hosted by Bob Ross, noted for his legendarily cheery manner and soft, friendly voice, the show aimed to teach people painting techniques in the amount of time given. Ross worked in oil paints and taught a method called "wet-on-wet painting", where the canvas would be coated with a wet base paint, then other colors would be laid over it, allowing for a variety of blending techniques. The show was very minimalist, using only a black background and two camera positions. Due to his time spent being stationed in Alaska in the Air Force, all of Ross' paintings were of nature, mostly forests or mountain valleys."

I love the show. It is just soothing, and fun to watch, even if you don't like painting. Full eps are available on YouTube.
