finish


Due to some family issues since the death of my father in dec. 2013, I have had little time to do anything but some watercolors for my ebay auction every week.  A lot of those issues are being resolved and hopefully soon I can resume my art life.  I'm posting a small in-progress watercolor. I am using a photo taken of model Aria Giovanni, which I cannot show you without permission. this piece will be posted for auction on tues. night, april,22.  the official Olivia ebay store~ http://bit.ly/1fOPSRY
