Mystery of Omaha


Saturday, March 19, 2005

After his father died, Michael Rips discovered he'd left behind a portfolio of portraits. No one in the family knew his father was a painter, but the bigger mystery was the subject of the portraits. Searching for the story behind the paintings, Rips tumbled down a rabbit hole of amazing discoveries which he reveals in his new book, Face of a Naked Lady, an Omaha Family Mystery. Rips recently stopped by Studio 360 to tell his story to Kurt Andersen, a fellow son of Omaha.
