<p> Mind of the Beholder

Painting can be a lot of things:  colorful, resilient, meaningful, puzzling at times and extremely personal.  But it is seldom boring. The signs, symbols, images and colors on a flat surface hold our attention and at moments have us at a dazzling balance between our emotions and our reason. 

Discussions can be sparked and open up new perspectives that maybe otherwise go unrealized. Never shying away from...

Leaving a Legacy

            Walking around the backstage shop of the Omaha Community Playhouse, set builders are hard at work creating the upcoming musical Young Frankenstein by Mel Brooks. They’re making gigantic cofins, painting large landscapes, sanding down staircases, and building a massive hayrack on bouncy springs for ‘ze roll in ze hay’. Checking in on the progress and showing me around the shop are the shows directors,...
