Xtine and Bob

Bob was named after his father, Robert Ward Wilson, but by the time Bob started painting in earnest, the name “Robert Wilson” was taken, first by the playwright, and second by the famous abstract painter. So Bob’s paintings are by “Ward Wilson” even though everyone called him “Bob.”

As recent transplants from Boston, Bob and I met through a personal ad in the Casco Bay weekly. Bob had been planning to move to LA with his comedy pals to pursue a career in showbiz, but his stepfather had recently been the sole fatality in Hurricane Bob in 1993, and Bob needed to come home to support his Mom through the crisis.
