Bill Rhea is a realist painter who lives in New Mexico. Kali (pictured in black) his assistant.
Kali’s origins are unknown, though she is believed to have commanded a brigade in the Spanish Civil War. As a result of this, her long friendships with both Picasso and Hemingway began. She served with distinction in WW2 with the French Foreign Legion. After the war she was briefly married to Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis, and Charles Nelson Reilly of Hollywood Squares fame. She is a Nobel prize recipient and enjoys eating food on the floor.

of others. He loves painting!
