Bob Ross–relativist?

I have been enjoying watching the Bob Ross “Joy of Painting” videos on Youtube as I learn to paint (albeit on a iPad). Bob is very calming and enjoyable to listen to, but one thing that jumped out at me recently was this quote “Do whatever makes you happy. As long as no one gets hurt, do whatever you want.” Isn’t that the exact definition of relativism? He occasionally mentions God, as in “God was having a good day when he made Alaska.” Do you think he meant to promote this terrible philosophy or did he mean it in a more harmless way? Anyway, please say a prayer for his repose.
