Paul had the brilliant idea of putting our family (of artistic-types) to the test vs. the legendary Bob Ross, and the Fordice Family Paint-off was born!

The competition was fierce but Bob took the edge off with his soothing voice and positive outlook.

Many participants veered away from Bob's very specific instruction and very neon color palette, thinking they knew better.
