Swiper The Fox
Kenneth M Kirsch
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
Returned Home after 14 Years!
This painting was (for all intents and purposes) stolen back in 1998.
An internet search rumoured it was perhaps out east in the Maritimes, but yielded no satisfaction.
In August 2012, I received an email from a young newlywed couple in Toronto who had apparently acquired this painting.
They wanted to know a bit about it's history, of which I told them that they were in the possession of stolen goods.
They felt quite awful and I asured them they were but innocent art lovers.
They expressed that it was rather large for their small condo and so we had an idea!
When they visited my studio to return the painting, I brought out a smaller painting I had done some years back of Maritime lobster boats.
Well, she was from out east and he just loves lobster boats so much that
they even went on a "lobster charter" on their honeymoon!
The exchange was made.
So after 14 years and always wondering about what ever happened to "Swiper" the Fox,
he returns home with his eyes having gazed upon stories I will never know!
Update...Swiper is gone again!!!
He was sold to a great home the very same day this story came out!
