I'd have to give credit to Maria Callas (of whome Renee is quite fond) for getting me into this crazy world of Opera. I first heard Callas about 4 years ago, downloading stuff from Napster when I was a sophomore in College (back when Napster was hot and free). As a tribute, I've painted a series of Maria Callas portraits. Since I don't want to be frivolous with my selection of subjects, I can't say Renee will be in my paintings, but maybe that could change.
Please visit my blog at ialmonte.blogspot.com as I'd like to share my work with my co-Opera fans. There's not much of a community for young adults (esp men) in their mid 20s who are into Opera as much as I am, so I thought this would be a good way to join, albeit a cyber, community.
