So, rather happily this morning I got a call from the gallery, fessing up to having sold it! Apparently it was sold on a Saturday while the owner wasn’t there and not logged properly.
I am rather relieved, as I thought it may have been propped against a wall while loading the car and then taken off to the tip. Which is a bit distressing, as you put a little bit of yourself into each painting and I don’t want a bit of me in landfill, thank you very much.
So, mystery solved AND I need to go and collect a cheque. Result all round!
