Welcome to Omaha!



Welcome to Omaha!

This painting is a portrait of putting yourself through school with terrible jobs, studying hard, getting As, entering your thirties with a string of degrees behind your name, and finding yourself on the brink of  a new life, renting an apartment in a small city and realizing that reality, well, bites.  My friend, Dawn Konrad-Martin, was generous enough to pose for this painting.  I asked her to smile as hard as she could.  The painting is supposed to mimic a snapshot, possibly taken by your dad, of you, with your shiny, new degree, posing in front of the new apartment house and life that you are embarking on.  Welcome to Omaha!
