Two recent sales due to attention from the thefts of February 14th.

I am happy to report that the traffic to my website has seen a massive increase in the last week due to the story of my stolen art having received so much attention.  If you're not already familiar with the story, please go to the link in the previous post.  One piece, titled "Colors of Ireland" was purchased by a woman in Scituate, MA and another piece, "Little Owl" was purchased by a woman in Hollister, MA.
These purchases would not have been made if not for the wide-spread attention this story has received.  As much as I'm still bummed about the stolen work, I am very grateful for these sales and the massive exposure I've received.
I'm also very pleased to report that the Beyond the Rainbow fund, the program which the art shows at the hospital benefits, has seen a flurry of additional donations due to this story.  In fact, one gentleman out of Boston donated $1000!!

In the spirit of giving and happy endings, I'm trying to sell 16 pieces from this show by Wednesday, March 2nd.  If this happens, almost $500 of additional donations would be raised for the Beyond the Rainbow fund.  I invite you to visit my Facebook page to check out the work and make your purchase.
All of my art is framed in an elegant and simple cherry-wood frame to museum quality standards and can be shipped anywhere.  You can get to my fb page through my website,  Click on the icon at bottom of my homepage.
Have a great weekend, everyone.  And thank you for your support!

The Plot Thickens

There may be a connection to a theft from Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital's Radiology/Oncology department. Apparently, two works of art were stolen from that facility one day before my works were taken. Working in the follow-up....will post any news as soon as it develops.

Art Heist!

Hello friends,

This week started off with a mystery and I need you to know about it. 21 of my paintings are currently hanging at the Exeter Hospital as part of a wonderful show that benefits a non-profit program, Beyond the Rainbow. Not only do I have the opportunity to display my work in a very nice setting, this program provides critical assistance to uninsured and under-insured oncology patients by funding needs like transportation, child care, heating bills and other essentials. 20% of my art sales goes to them.

On Monday, February 14th, two of my paintings mysteriously disappeared. The paintings are shown here, Beach Day and Newfoundland Fishing Shacks. Go to these links to read the story:

I am reaching out to everyone I know in the community to ask for your help. The more eyes that are familiar with the paintings, the better chance I might have of ever seeing them again.

I could consider this a compliment, and on some level I do. However, this is a hit to my livelihood, as well as a "slap to cancer patients". I was in shock for most of the week. Now I'm just angry.

If you know anything abut their disappearance, please contact the local police department (772-1212) or the hospital (778-7311). As an alternative, I think you can leave an anonymous posting here.

Thanks for all of the support and positive responses I've received this week! Keep your eyes and ears peeled....
