This is information every selling artist should know.
STILL STOLEN... but not forgotten...
After 26 years (1986-2012) this small 7x7 inch pocket-size painting on panel remains listed with the national and international registries for stolen fine art paintings.
WHEN IT WAS STOLEN...
In 1986, "Two Fighting Hummingbirds" was entered into a recognized national magazine's wildlife art contest.
"Two Fighting Hummingbirds" was accepted, judged, selected and published as the 19th winner from 239 entries in the January/February 1986 issue of the magazine, "Wildlife Art News".
A SURPRISE REPLY...after the contest...
When "Two Fighting Hummingbirds" did not find its way home, long distance phone calls of inquiry were made to the magazine, requesting the painting's return.
THE RESULTS WERE...the magazine said...
"It did not know about the painting or where the painting was, also they have no system to track its location." Now knowing about the lost painting, denied any responsibility for its care and return. Stating, "There is no more that we can do."
THE END RESULT... the stolen art is still stolen.
Exhibiting my art I have had 5 paintings STOLEN.
