Olivia the Sea Turtle (heartbroken by Arielle the mermaid)

I met the artist Virginia Warwick at the Vermont Studio Center a couple of summers back. She is also known as Olivia, the sea turtle. I like her characters and stories. They're funny and sad, and then funny again. When Olivia was at the VSC, she got her nails done, basked on a rock by the river, and publicly demolished a jell-o mold of Arielle (she seemed to be having a hard time with the break-up). Now, it looks like she's doing better.

This is Virginia, in her role as Olivia, in the latest work-in-progress (she's adding sound!):
