I found a post on MOTL including who bought it.

User tap4black indicated he bought it. "Yes they did, and as soon as I choose a nice set of matched frames, they'll be on the wall!"
Email listed as tap4black@yahoo.com

Unfortunately, I haven't found much of an online presence for him

oddly where that says $1,000 here is a fb post referencing a previous time it was listed (by Anson forever ago?) for $2,000

i see Anson's site saying it'll be auctioned next month.

EDIT: Maybe I found him? Anyone know Len Osborne?

Here is another post of his showing off OA but not that one I don't think but leads me to be confident I found your guy.

If I'm reading this correctly Anson appeared to have listed living wall as stolen artwork back in 2004.

So sounds like it was stolen, years later (like 10) put up on ebay, then maybe Len got in touch with Anson and worked something out? I don't know.

Can you tell I like trying to find things others can't? :)

Now help me find some reasonably-price grim lavamancer artist proofs besides the one james put on ebay like the ones Mike had agreed on a price to sell me then said they got stolen before he got to the post office :( OA had gotten too expensive by the time I wanted it. Jaco wanted to flip GL for way more than I was willing to spend so the only thing I have is Terese's original sketch for Obstinate Familiar

thanks Knutsen ! I'm relieved I'm not losing my mind. This is denied by the person who will be selling it on facebook (it was apparently stolen)... Do you happen to remember who it was ?

Since it's mentioned here that the art was stolen, I think it's important to also mention that the art was recovered. The website indicates that this piece was recovered, but we should repeat that info here in case the website ever goes down or the link gets broken. I wouldn't want to see future concerns about the piece that were based on fragmented information.

When the website was updated in 2019, they announced it on Facebook and it caused quite a discussion.
It seemed really odd to wait 10 years to report a theft, or something like that.
Either way though, the rightful ownership of this particular piece seems to be settled.
