During his career, Bob Ross painted over 1,000 landscapes. In addition, Bob once admitted having painted over 30,000 paintings in his lifetime! However, if you try to find one of them, you may be disappointed. Many people have tried to find an original Bob Ross painting at auctions, galleries, and online… only to find dead-end after dead-end.

Turns out, almost all of the paintings are still held at Bob Ross, Inc. They are kept in cardboard boxes in a room, with numbers on the side. The owners don’t talk about selling the paintings and likely don’t plan to. The company Bob Ross, Inc., however, does sell painting supplies, videos, books, T-shirts, and other Bob Ross swag.
