Off-topic: Andrea co-painting a replica streetcar!

My lovely and talented partner Andrea Steinwand is, in addition to being a glass artist, a theatre production technician specializing in scenic painting. This is a cool video clip (She's the short, curvy blonde with the 2-tone pixie cut) promoting last Saturday's abridged outdoor production of "Strike: The Musical" about the historic 1919 General Strike in Winnipeg. Andrea co-painted a replica of "streetcar 596" which became the spark for this photograph which represents the General Strike in Canadian history.
Although it may sound like an unlikely theme for a musical it's actually very well-done (Andrea painted the set for the 2005 full-scale Winnipeg production) and a fun way to learn about our dramatic past! It's being staged again this summer at the Forks in Winnipeg if anyone is interested in checking it out.
