Talented painter in our midst

90-year-old Bob Hower took up painting in 2005 after remodeling five houses, built two barns and restored over 50 automobiles

Maple Crest Villa resident Bob Hower is a one-person assembly line. At age 90, he can look back on a lifetime of building and remodeling homes and restoring old cars.

“I built my own house and remodeled five,” Hower added.  “I’ve built two barns and restored more than 50 automobiles.” 

He is just as productive with his artwork. Taking up painting in 2005, he’s completed 130 oils with a goal of 150.  Discovering oil painting later in life, Hower holds a bachelor’s degree in art and has taught himself skills in several areas.  This is quite a departure from the career he thought he’d follow . . . working on slate roofs.

Survey shows “zero deficiencies”

6th consecutive “zero deficiency” survey form
