REALLY Private Collection

One of my paintings was recently added to someone's private collection, although in an unauthorized manner.
They offered themselve's a huge discount you might say, surreptitiously collecting the work from the venue it was being offered.

I should say this puts my work in good company. Other more famous artists' work have been acquired in the same manner, and all you have to do is a web search and you'll know what I mean.

I can only take this as a compliment of course since no one would bother if it had no value to them.
I would actually like to hear from the uh... 'really private collector'... so feel free to leave a comment, I would enjoy your thoughts on the piece, what attracted you to it, why did you have to have it?
Any thoughts you might have...

  1. David!
    I am so sorry. I am almost speechless. It would be wonderful it the painting is returned. Hang in the there.
    Your art buddy,

  2. Hi Michael,
    I don't expect it to be returned.
    I'm sure it was borrowed indefinitely from the venue it was being offered for purchase. As I said I can only take as a compliment.
    Keep painting...
    Your art (heisted) buddy
