Keep a sharp eye out for a missing $8,000 to $10,000 painting on your next trip around the interstate in East Memphis.
A noted Memphis artist's latest masterwork took flight off the top of a vehicle around Interstate 240 and Nonconnah Parkway on Tuesday, November 5th.
"I'm just in shock," said Paul Edelstein of the now missing five foot by five foot painting of abstract figures in a landscape.
Edelstein said a client came to his studio to pick up the large painting and deliver it to the Vesta Home Show in Germantown. Edelstein said his client tied down the large painting on the roof of her vehicle "but it caught a tailwind."
"Apparently the wind got under it or it wasn't tied down very well," said Linda Kennamore Bourassa, the artist's publicist.
Bourassa says she worked with a noted decorator who is designing the interior of one of the six Vesta Home Show properties.
