Dynamic Painting USA and the Osprey Observer have teamed together to offer a new Painting From the Heart campaign. The campaign, intended to give an exterior home paint job to a
local veteran in the community, has been a huge success over the last several years with four local families receiving an exterior home paint job.

Rob Silver of Dynamic Painting plans to continue the effort this upcoming holiday season by once again giving away an exterior home paint job.

“I am a small business owner,” said Silver. “But, if I can give back and make a huge impact for a local family and a local veteran in time for the Christmas holiday, I am happy to do it.”

Silver’s commitment to serving others began when he was a child, tagging along with his mom as she volunteered in the community.

One of the past recipients of a free exterior paint job includes Pam Ramoska. 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.

Brandon single mom Sharon Cooley, who adopted a son and two young siblings, and The Ellis family of Riverview, whose father, Jason, is a wounded Iraq war veteran with five children and most recently, Lithia single mom Daniella Vetencourt whose oldest son has special needs, were also past recipients.

“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.”

To enter, fill out the application to the right and send in to with a story about why you are nominating this veteran and/or yourself and a photo of the exterior of the home by Monday, December 21 or contact Silver at 689-9333 or visit
