Dear friends,

The last 18 months of my life have certainly had their good moments, but also I have had the worst art and career months ever.

In September 2012, someone or 'someones' stole over 50 of my paintings and 6 shelves of great art books from a locked building on Hamilton St in Allentown, PA.  Art books, cookbooks, personal journals, French books ... some of them 1st editions signed by the authors - including 'Mary Cassatt • A Life'  ... and many of them were gifts to me.  As you can see, I've stopped my painting, blogging ... and my 'joie de vivre' has been seriously impacted.

Please check my website to see just some of the stolen paintings.

IF you have any information on the whereabouts of my paintings and/or books, please call the Allentown Police Department ... and me.  I will gratefully paint you something to your liking as a reward.

Sincerely ~


Ann Elizabeth Schlegel
