You see last week I sold one of my all time favorite paintings (it might be my dad's very favorite.) It was part of a series I called 'Anastasia' and each painting features a little girl with her back towards the viewer. We were sad to see it go but happy that it had a new home. I wrapped the painting which was done on a cradle back wooden board in paper and bubble wrap and then made a custom box out of some heavy duty cardboard. Some where between here and it's US destination someone smashed it. Someone managed to practically break the wood board in half and damaged a smaller painting that I had wrapped up in bubble wrap and placed inside next to it.
The photo shows the painting damage from the back. Completely destroyed.
It breaks my heart to think about it. Some careless person destroyed today a small part of me that can never be fixed.
I will write another update when I have more to share!
