Here's the most eye catching painting I've seen today. Playboy magazine pinup artist Olivia De Berardinis spent three years painting this 78" x 40" acrylic-on-canvas Carnivore I (1996). Her model was Tracy Tweed. The work was bought from a Los Angeles gallery for $60,000. It comes up for grabs in LiveAuctioneers / Wilton Theatre Auction Gallery. Lot 80 (CLICK).
