Truth, Mirth, and Turmoil: Sneak Peeks

Well, the show (Truth, Mirth, and Turmoil: Shakespeare Paintings by Richard Lance Russell) is on display in the lobby of the Randall Jones Theatre in Cedar City, Utah! I'm posting a few sneak peeks of some of my favorite pieces:

First up, Oberon and Titania from "A Midsummer Night's Dream." I love the moon, the luminescence of her dress, and the perfect embodiment of these characters!

This one has the grace and tenderness that characterizes Romeo and Juliet.
