Rob Silver, owner of Dynamic Painting USA, recently completed the full-home exterior paint job for Bloomingdale resident Pam Ramoska, the current winner of the most recent Painting From The Heart campaign in partnership with Osprey Observer Newspapers. Ramoska, a single mom with two teenage boys, lost her husband from a tragic heart attack and was finding it hard to keep up with the exterior of her home. Her application was sent in from a dear friend, Julie Utley, and was selected as the winner.

This was the third campaign and fourth paint job completed by Silver for Painting from the Heart. The first recipient was a Brandon single mom Sharon Cooley who adopted a son and two young siblings. The next recipient was The Ellis family of Riverview. The father, Jason, is a wounded Iraq war veteran with five children.

The third winners were Dale and Peggy Weir, whose daughter, Angela, wrote in for them. Angela, a single mom herself, wanted to do something nice for her parents and their Brandon home was in need of an exterior home paint job.

“They have always given everything they have for their family,” said Angela. “They never think of themselves and we all just can’t believe our family won.”

For this edition of the campaign, Silver partnered with Tonya and Andrew Walsh from Walsh Commercial Cleaning who have agreed to throw in carpet cleaning as well. In addition, the Osprey Observer offered a new hair style and color from The Loft Hair Lounge.

“I am so thrilled with the way the house came out,” said Ramoska, “I don’t have to be embarrassed about how it looks anymore! Painting From the Heart is the perfect name for your campaign, for your crew were all so wonderful and worked so hard.”
