Rob, a cancer survivor, was motivated to paint watercolors during his treatment in 1996. After listing things he wanted to do, but never had time for, painting appeared at the top of his list. He began painting in the summer of 1998. It continues to be a passion, consuming a great deal of his time. "I picked up a brush and found watercolors!" - Rob
