Actually I think he died many years ago, in the mid 90's.....hell Google would tell us in 2 seconds, but I'm too lazy :P
My friend and I used to watch him and laugh..and then alot of times I'd just watch him..amazed that this soft, passive guy with the HUGE fro' could churn out a winter scene in like....15 minutes.
I remember MTV even had a bumper with him on it where he was painting a big MTV with "Happy Little Trees"..
But now, here's ANOTHER QUESTION for you:
Do you guys remember the crazy german guy who also had his own painting show!?
I can't remember his name, but he also had a painting show, and he was LOUD...UND HE HAD ZE GERMAN ACCIDENT....my friend and I used to crack up and call each other "Turn on PBS, that crazy Nazi is on!"....
Yep, he's been dead since 1995
