These are actually pretty cool. Just looked through a gallery of like, 400 Bob Ross paintings. He painted a whole lot of the same scenes. It was actually kind of hard to find something that stood out. Kinda gives credence to the serial killer theory, eh? Lol

That's how he worked. Not only were the different paintings similar, any one painting was done over and over.

Serial killer theory?

There was a fan joke theory going around that he was a serial killer and painted the places he had hidden the bodies, lol.

I guess the guy just.really liked the idea of being alone in the wilderness.

He was indeed a master, of sorts. I suspect in a 100 years or so, his paintings will be worth quite a lot of money, if they aren't already. And considering how many people copied his work and his style (because that was the whole point of his show and his painting style), distinguishing between authentic and fraudulent Bob Ross's could be one the big art controversies of the future.

He was not a very good artist at all

That's an opinion shared by a few people over talked to. My response is always the same: He was painting to teach, for the most part. It's not supposed to be a Mona Lisa, it's something you can imitate and use to learn techniques to get better at painting in general.

To that end, his paintings are quite good if a bit repetitive.

Did he donate or auction all his paintings off to charity?

Not that I'm aware. I'm sure a bunch made it there (One gallery I saw had over 1100 paintings!) but it seems a good majority are in private hands.
