The Fine Arts Festival that filled Main Street earlier this month was a great success.
Art lovers flocked to see — and buy — wonderful paintings, sculptures and photos. Artists happily sold as much as they could.
But one piece went mysteriously missing.
As Westporter Carole McClintock was packing up her work — no long drive home for her! — she absent-mindedly left a large, wet koi fish painting up against the brick wall of Bedford Square.
She spent the next 10 days traveling. So she realized only now that it was not in her studio, with the rest of that weekend’s work.
McClintock would love to have it back. Not only is it unsold, but it’s unfinished. It had not even been signed.
“My guess is that someone found the painting and kept it, not knowing what else to do with it,” she says.
