My millionaire collector bagged out on me! He said in March "I would like a Donald Trump painting because I think it will be worth a lot of money some day Michelle." After the completion of the painting....no contact and no money. I never asked for my usual 50% down because he owns four of my paintings already and he has millions.
The rumor is, he didn't want it hanging in his office because it's so controversial and it would create a rift with his anti Trump clients, and he was afraid of what it would do for business. Of coarse, if it was just a collectors item to him, he could just store it until a later date. But, the way I see it, he's a gutless, careless man who stole three months of my life and he couldn't even find the time to communicate his reservations about the painting and made me believe I would be paid for my efforts. Lesson learned. No matter who they are...get a deposit!
UPDATE on 12/19/2019: The Donald Trump 3D painting is SOLD to a new collector.
