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....
