Brad's 2013 Phantom of the Opera Performance

I cant believe that two years have past since I accepted an invitation to put on an artistic performance in Oconomowoc Wisconsin to benefit OPEF which is short for the (Oconomowoc Public Education Foundation). I have done this before many years ago to help the "Southern Maryland Wildlife Foundation and it really helped them out. Here i am helping those out in my own state, feel good about that. Designed and built the set and choreographed the performance arounda painting I did of my fiance as Christine (The Phantoms Angel of the Night) especially for this fundraiser. As the Phantom I brought MY Angel of the Night to my studio below the Paris Opera House and painted her portrait on stage before a jam packed ballroom of geusts and contributors to the OPEF cause. I OPEF was auctioning some of my "Opening Night" fine art limited editon prints after the performance as well as my original oil painting unveiled on stage that night. The whole effort was a big success for OPEF.
