"Artist Manuel Cruz was extremely neat, organized, punctual, talented beyond ones belief, and has since also become a friend! He has painted a 4'x 6' mural for me of my imaginative world, a family tree down my staircase, a beautiful sky scene with baby angels and he even painted my electric box into a cabin/ocean scene! He is busy, but well worth the wait!"
