A commissioned portrait of the Greek opera singer Viki Bello, made for her upcoming recital of famous arias in November 2009 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. (Among them, she will sing “Carmen,” by George Bizet, my favorite opera, I must add. You may hear her voice on Bob’s page, at http://scifialmanac.ning.com/profile/BobBello)
P.S. Friends, Bob Bello has brought me back from the dark places of depression and the “lost” areas of life since Rick died. Thank you Bob, for your patience, faith, and your healing friendship.
