How a painter can change...............!

This is Eric, in his element, 30' off the ground. 

He does most of the artwork by himself
& researches, paints and designs each project from scratch. 

His wife Kathy, also an artist,
serves as project manager.

SIMPLY AMAZING, ISN'T IT? 

I wonder how many people walk into the walls, while trying to go down a hallway that does not exist!
Can't we do our subways as beautiful as this?
