Nice piece!, but I'm not sure I understand the situation. Are you saying your current work is very different? That wouldnít be surprising. How did this sale come about?

I sold this peace 15 years ago. I was just wondering what the buyer thinks of it after all these years. And sulisiting replys from other artist who may have experenced replys fron buyers that bought there works years ago. I have a lot of buyers who buy offten. But the ones that you never here from make you wonder. The buyer was in Texas I am In Los Angeles But I Often think of my past works. Not all of my work if figuretive I also do a lot of abstracts and furniature peses. thanks for the reply.

Thanks for the additional info. I've rarely heard back from people who have bought my work, as long ago as when I started (about 1990, 15 years), and of course what I have heard is positive - who would come back and complain?
I also have bought art, generally paintings, for even longer that I have sculpted, maybe 40 years, and I donít think I ever have looked up an artist to report in any way, though Iím very happy with nearly all. If I see them, I recall the work and thank them, if this seems appropriate.
This might be a good line of thought for othersí comments.
I keep a mailing list of people who have bought things from me or signed my guestbook at shows. Sometimes I send out postcard mailings of a new piece just so everyone knows how to find me and what kinds of work I'm doing. Keep people updated and they may contact you again.
