As most of you know, I am a easy-going, fun loving happy person....but something hasn't been sitting right with me the past few days. I was informed by a close friend that they found my artwork for sale on Craigslist. So out of curiosity I went and took a peek of what they were selling and how much....and I unfortunatly what I found was a local person selling paintings of "my art" that she had painted.
Due to future legalities I am refraining from sharing the screen shot of what I found, but wanted to share a picture with you the photo that was on Craigslist:
This is so not OK with me on so many different levels. I have felt sick to my stomach for the past two days. First of all, I just don't want to have to deal with all this, I have enough to do to get ready for the holiday shows. Second, why would somebody copy someone's work EXACTLY? Third, to have the nerve to try to sell something that is a direct copy in this small little town is beyond me.
PLEASE BEWARE OF SCAM ARTISTS! IF YOU FIND SOMEONE SELLING "FUNKY" ACRYLIC PAINTINGS OR SOMETHING THAT LOOKS SIMILAR TO MY WORK, PLEASE NOTIFY ME.
I do not, and will not ever sell my art on Craigslist.
