Apparently, on the second day of the Behemoth show, someone came in and stole one of the smaller paintings. Unfortunately it had sold on the opening night so the buyer had to be refunded. Red Propeller were extremely upset about it and they’ve taken the financial hit on it – which is very good of them. They said that it’s not my fault so I shouldn’t be out of pocket. I said that it wasn’t their fault either – it was the fault of the thief!
Anyway, thinking about the theft of one of my paintings, in all honesty, I consider it a sort of strange compliment – to think that someone wanted a painting so badly that they had to steal it.
Anyway - the point of this posting
If they took it because they had to have it then I’m not as hacked off as I would be if someone stole it to shift on the secondary market. So if anyone out there is offered a small canvas of mine, wonderfully framed by Tunnadine Fine Art Framing (marked on the back), by the title of ‘des paillotes’, (the title is collaged on the canvas) about 20 cm square...
Let me know by email though my website (as I'm rarely on here) or give red Propeller a shout.
