It has recently come to my attention that Ms. Aviva Stone passed away in the fall of 2007. Not only was Aviva one of the premiere models for the New York sketching scene, but she was a wonderfully sweet and caring person with an unbeatable personality. Avivagirl will be sorely missed, but not gone. She has been drawn and painted thousands of times over many many years by hundreds of artists. Her face will pop up in portfolios and galleries for years to come.
