That's terrible, is there some chance this is the same buyer having difficulty deciding on which image to purchase? I'm new to selling so I understand just how disappointing this must be for you. It sounds like they are cancelling before the order is shipped so it's no reflection on the quality of your work. You have nice work so try to be patient and "keep your chin up" as my grandfather would say.

Did they tell you why, Anne? I suspect that it's the slight softness on the iris, but it should be fine on anything other than a large print. If the print is 16" or smaller, you could request reconsideration.

Murry - I believe her previous problem was the buyer changing their mind. Not FAA canceling the sale.

Hi Folks. Thanks for your words of encouragement. Happy Easter, all.

I am closing this thread now. The "machinery" behind the scenes notifies the public about a sale. Every artist loves seeing those messages in their Email--but when the sale actually gets cancelled prior to shipment it makes me wonder if the sales announcement should be held until the print is actually in the mail. That would stop the high/low rollercoaster.
