Missing Piece: UPDATE

I don't even know where to begin. Dr. Mazloomi has been trying her best to get to the bottom of this. Turns out the museum is saying they sent it back 2 YEARS ago. WTF?! I do not have it. It's all so crazy and sad. I almost wish it was just the deal with 2 months. Somebody out there signed "L.Moore" for it and it wasn't me. I always sign things "L. Holland-Moore." I notoriously never ever go by L. Moore. As it was so long ago, there is no record of the digital signature or even if FedEx really did properly deliver it to my home (It happens. I've had things that needed to be signed for to wrongfully go to other homes). This is all so horrifying to me.

All I know is that my piece is not at home with me. I have no reason to lie. I don't even want compensation for it because there is NO AMOUNT OF MONEY that can make up for its loss. I just want it back.

Does this sound like someone who has it just sitting at their home? Why would I even be making a stink about this now if I had it or had known? I'm not that kind of person and I don't have time for blame-placing either. All I know is that if you see this piece somewhere, please know that it isn't theirs and the person did not buy it from me and it was not a gift. Please contact me or Dr Mazloomi if you see it.

This piece means a lot to me. It was created in honor of my ancestors. My heart is broken regarding it and aside from commissions or personal pieces for family and friends, I am not sure I wish to continue creating the Natal portrait series. I just want it to come home to me...PLEASE!
