Driving down the road you look over -- and see a black and white, 7x9-foot painting of Harry Houdini on the side of a garage. I spoke with the garage's owner and artist. He did the painting from a picture that he had. It always makes me smile when I see it.

The original woodcut-style artwork from which this mural was enlarged was created by graphic designer (and magician) Chuck Romano in 1995.
