In the past six months, 5 of my paintings have been stolen from our gallery-averaging almost one every month. Even though I’ve had to resort to wiring them to the wall, my`collector`has managed to figure out a way to steal them—probably mans himself with wire cutters before visiting.
Well we know who you are Mr----who lives in a city starting with the letter B---and thanks to our new video surveillance system we will be able to prove it upon your next attempt. Since you are such a fan of my work I am going to assume you read my blog. I hope you read it because I would like you to know how hurt and disappointed I am that someone would commit such a cowardly and despicable act.
Do you somehow feel a sense of entitlement, or does it give you a sense of power knowing that you got away with it? Either way, it is disheartening to know that my work-created honestly –is in your possession-you don’t deserve to have it.
I have included the stolen paintings below. If anyone has seen them I would be very grateful to know the details. I will happily GIVE you one of my paintings (and keep your name confidential) if your information helps in apprehending this pusillanimous thief.
