Hmmmm. I received an email this afternoon of an invoice ( paid) from a gallery we buy from for our records and the insurance company.
I called my wife who is in Santa Fe ( I'm in Dallas currently) to talk after I received the email, and she said nothing about buying a Joel Shapiro piece. I even called her back a few minutes later, and again nothing.
Both of our birthday's are within the next week, so I guess she may have bought this as a gift, but I sure would feel better knowing for sure she did indeed buy the piece and nothing funny is going on. I can call the gallery, but would hate to spoil the surprise if that is her plan.
