Every now and then you come across an individual who just makes an impression on you, and you want to know more about them.

For Fox 13's Dave Nemeth, 97-year-old Bob Griswold was one of those people. He's a very busy guy who's led a very busy life. And although he's 97, he's not done, not by a long shot.

We first met Bob at Age Performance Fitness Center while shooting a story about older adults and the benefits of exercise.

Turns out, Bob is an accomplished artist. Today, he has a whole gallery of his work on display where his love of nature shines through his sketches and watercolors. Growing up in California, bob was raised a true outdoorsman and was full of early ambition.

Check out Bob's story in this week's Booming Forward in the video above!
