My Wimpy Painting for a Houston Heights Restaurant was Stolen!

What a crazy story! In February I painted this piece for Balls Out Burgers a restaurant in Houston Heights and it was stolen from the restaurant along with the cash register!

The painting was mixed media acrylic, spray paint with stencils on paper 24"x30". After framing it and delivering it I heard nothing back from Balls Out Burgers. When I had delivered the painting I got a weird vibe from the guy who I handed it to. I was told he was the manager but he just kinda took the painting without even saying thanks! Anyway, after a month with no news I emailed them to see if they even liked the painting. The response was that the painting had been stolen! Apparently someone made off with a bunch of money and the painting. How crazy is that? The nice people from customer service said they did not know that nobody had contacted me to say thanks. They offered me free burgers too, which I will gladly accept.
