Rob Smith’s Santa Stallone

I’ve known Rob Smith Jr. for over 30 years.  In addition to being a talented artist, Rob is one of the most passionate, committed and dedicated people I’ve ever met.  Rob absolutely loves the state of Florida, nature, art, politics, reading and more.  Rob’s enthusiasm is contagious and he is always on the go.  Another thing I admire about Rob is he doesn’t just talk about his passions, he gets actively involved.

Rob and I met up for breakfast with another old friend [Jim Ivey] earlier this week.  As we were eating, talking and doing a lot of laughing, Rob whipped up his take on Sly as Santa.  After our breakfast, Rob headed out to another meeting about preserving an old Florida school and then to an evening meeting with the Florida Trail Association.     Whew!
