Anybody ever get stiffed on a sale from a DPW artist?

I think this is a first for me. I made an auction sale to a “fellow” DPW artist and I think he’s stiffing me on the sale.
I’m getting no communication what-so-ever.
I sent about 4 re-notify emails and even flagged.

No response at all.

Anyway, I guess not.

I had one buyer who did the same thing. After I’d pretty much given up and was about to re-offer the piece, I finally got a response. Apparently she had been very ill in the hospital. She had not seen any of the notices or reminders. She paid in the end and I sent her the painting. It ended up taking about a month but I was glad I waited.
