Disappearing collectors

I worked on the face. Needs some final touches, but for the most part I'm happy with it.


Today I finally gathered the courage to message a collector who expressed a desire to purchase one of my paintings back in October. I had told him I would hold it for him so the paint could dry. So now that it is, I felt this would be a good time to reconnect and let him know. The guy is a fairly important collector of emerging artists here, so I was super excited that he had some interest in my work.

He had originally found me via facebook through friends, so that's how we were keeping in touch. Unfortunately, I was shocked to find that he has deleted his account. Apparently he's much better at ditching facebook than my friend S, because there was no trace of him anywhere but my list of freinds, where when I click on his iconless name link, a message pops up telling me that the account has been disabled.

C'est la vie. His partner is also a collector (they're a team, really) and still has an account so I sent a friends request. We'll see.
