- ‘After Ross left the Air Force, he was struggling to make it as a full-time artist. Tight on cash, he got a perm, figuring he would no longer need to pay for frequent haircuts.’
“Before he could change it back, though, the perm became his company’s logo — Ross hated it. “He could never, ever, ever change his hair, and he was so mad about that,” Kowalski says. “He got tired of that curly hair.”
“In fact, Ross made three of the same paintings for every episode. The first was sitting off camera and was used for reference. The second was the one viewers saw on TV. And the third was a more detailed landscape used for his instructional books. Ross was meticulous.”
