:::WAS 1975 AND::
:i made the first Volkswagon Bus Bags decades ago. andI called the MAIN OFFICE IN NEW JERSEY every day and pleaded for them to see what I designed and it would bring in great profits for us both!!
..They hung up..I called again..same thing.
I called TWICE A DAY and finally a VP got on phone and said if they see that would finally shut me up-and come in and show them what I designed
...AND SO I WENT AND WITHIN AN HOUR I was sitting with their lawyers and accountants doing the numbers of how it would profit!!THEY LOVED IT
VW OF AMERICA gave me a tour of all their properties and then they told me they wanted me to DO IT and I could keep all the monies since I was so young and was trying anything to make a living as an artist here in NYC ( hard to do when your a young gal and alone and broke). THEY gave me the OK to mass produce and they advertised my bags all over the world...I have that under my belt as one of my FIRSTS in my careers in the ARTS
A very very well known Magazine named "THE NEW YORK" WAS ONE OF THE MAGAZINES that reviewed my bags ..heres the full page..then I made then in blue and white,,,red and white,,NY checker cabs and animal cracker bags..animal carrier bags and tote bags. They WERE LARGE AND THEN I MADE VERY SMALL BAGS AND SEWED A SAMPLE LOOP TO THE BAGS AS A TEST AND CALLED THEM SMALL WRIST BAGS AND BELT BAGS ..TESTED THEM ON MARKET AND MADE HIT with all stores ordering like crazy
They sold very very well around America I was 27 years old, and felt like I owned NYC...tee hee. Everywhere I went near the most famous stores my Bags ( Saks Fifth Avenue,,,Bloomingdales....Nehman and Marcus....Lord and Taylors...and soo many many more) my bags were in their windows beautifully displayed
....Designing bags and clothes was a fun thing for me to do but not my dream
..My dream was for all to know my paintings and that happened later...BUT IT DID HAPPEN!! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤*•°.°•*•°.°•*

AN AMAZING AUTUMN DAY::::''EARTH''©Sheila Wolk 2001
The wind is blowing, the temperature is chilled....golden leaves falling like like drips of paint from the limbs and branches of tree's. The breeze sings Autumn in the air....and I am loving every second of this GLORY*+*+*+***+

⚫️::::YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE::::⚫️
Today infringement is rampant on the Internet facilitated by service providers who provide an almost uncontrolled forum. All artists are susceptible. While the DMCA protects the service providers, in most cases from suit, the perpetrators are not protected.
In 2016 I discovered extensive infringement of my artwork, ‘’Metamorphosis’’ that was committed in England and the United States by Stephen Ormerod. I brought a lawsuit against him for his willful copyright infringement.
I am pleased to announce that the Federal District Court in New York (Docket 18-cv-3020) granted judgment against Ormerod, in my favor for $100,000.00 for his willful and extensive copyright infringement.
A copy of that Judgment is posted here. Ormerod is now serving a prison sentence in HM Prison in Preston, England.
It is my intent to continue to protect my rights in the future.
So I was at my corner ''Plant Shed'' Store re-potting my cactus into larger vase and saw ❤️❤️Peter Max sitting in back of Store in the cafe having a cake with some friends and I went up to him and said " excuse me but You Are Peter Max, right? ...and he nodded his head YES..and I reminded him how he met with me when I was 19 years old, alone in NYC with 500 dollars in my pocket, standing in a phone booth, looked up the word 'ARTIST' saw his name and called and needed a job . He said if I had the nerve to call then he had the nerve to say OK... he found my first job for me, and that was 53 years ago!!!!!!!!!💛💚💗💜💙
Peter Is now older too and has dementia but I stayed and told him that he will always be in my heart where he helped me out in my time of need so long ago.
...He asked me how I did in the Arts and I said at this time in my life, it was rough but very good to me in the end and how I am setting up a foundation to pay it forward when I die to help other artists .
...He smiled, gave me 2 thumbs up and said...GOOD FOR YOU!.....I told him that he mattered so much to me and I was so very lucky to see him 53 years later to say THANK YOU
WAS A GREAT DAY! for the both of us. 💛💚💗💜💙-s.wolk 2020
