Crazy For A Day by Nancy Eckels - STOLEN!!!!!

THIS PAINTING HAS BEEN STOLEN!!
Someone came by my booth at an art festival this past weekend in Bellevue, Wa. and decided that they wanted this painting without paying for it.  Even though there were other large, more accessible paintings that could have been taken for resale, somehow they managed to avoid security and get this large 4 foot by 6 foot painting out of my booth in the middle of the night.  I can't believe someone would hang something on their wall that they stole from the artist, but it takes all kinds.  I probably will never see the painting again, but I'm going to put this photo in as many places as I can.  It will, at least, make me feel better.  IF YOU SEE THE PAINTING, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.  IT'S PROBABLY STILL IN THE SEATTLE/BELLEVUE AREA.

OH MY GOD! WOW! (Yes, I am using my raised voice!) I can't believe someone would take something so boldly. That really is bad. I hope that you get it back.

Oh Nancy, I am so sorry!
I can't understand that, I just can't... two years ago someone still two of mine smaller pieces and I forgive them, but I didn't understand why

What a scoundrel, whoever they are.

Unfortunately, I don't know anyone in the Bellevue area, but I'll share this on my Digg and Facebook page all the same.

Hope you find it soon.

Thanks so much to those who are getting the word out and in some cases the photo. I won't hold my breath to get it back, but you never know whats around the next corner. Perhaps this person actually has a conscience and will return it.....or not.

I'll say this much for this nitwits - they certainly have good taste in art! I hope you get it back!
