The Painting #11


Given that many of her friends were also Giorgio's customers, he had no problem finding Dawn. After waiting 50 days from collection of the painting, he hand delivered a reminder of her agreement to have settled his account 20 days earlier. Now, it read, the sum payable was increased to £600, payable no later than 60 days after she had collected the picture, and in accordance with his terms of business, to which she had agreed. He informed her that if she hadn’t paid the £600 now due in full by those 60 days, then ‘further steps would be taken’.
