Want to see an artist get nervous?

Just got done installing the final mural for the Temple Theatre, Encore in Viroqua.

Jim La Sater of Legacy Painting and Decorating, wonderful guy and very good at what he does, could still make the hair on the back of neck stand on end. It happened every time he took out his trusty exacto blade. Even though he has been at this for a few decades, it still makes one cringe.

Take a 62" x 137 " canvas that you have worked on for a few months and have a guy start cutting on it with one of these exacto blades. Then you'll know what I mean.

As always Jim came through just has he did on the other 9 murals.
Thanks nice job Jim!
