Follow up note and gratification

Before I left for Greece I shipped a "happy dog" sculpture on a bronze bed to a gentleman who saw my work at the Conroe Art League show this spring. I finished his piece the day before we left. I had not heard from him and was worried maybe he was not happy. I am a worrier. Yesterday I emailed him to make sure all was good and also to remind him that if he ever tires of the sculpture I have a buy back policy. I will buy back any of my work for the price I originally sold the work for. It has to be in good condition, not damaged. I do this to keep I my work out of the secondary market - estate sales, auctions......etc. 


Here is a cropped screen shot of his response. 


Wow! It pays to follow up. I could not be more pleased and gratified that my little sculpture means so much to his family. I hope I can come up with a moose that he is equally pleased with.
