Sold at SDAI C-Note Show!

I am happy to report my original painting “Fire and Ice” sold at this weekends San Diego Art Institute C-Note Show!

The show was a four day event, Thursday was the artists reception, Friday the auction and main event, and Saturday & Sunday were open to the public. The unique thing about this show is that the buyers literally took the paintings off the wall at the time of sale.

I was at the show on Thursday and got to see all of the art up on the walls, it was invigorating and exciting to be a part of all the hub-bub! My little piece was on the wall with some amazing artists, such an honor!

It was also really cool to meet in person fellow blogger and artist, Tim, of Off Center & Not Even, he came all the way from Albuquerque! Not just for the show, he and his lovely wife were in town for a conference so it was really nice of them to come so we could meet. Tim, why didn’t we take a picture together??!

When I met my family at the show today, my piece was not to be found! I was a little sad that my family missed seeing my art in the show, but I am ecstatic that my piece sold!!!

I am super curious who bought it, that information was not shared with me. I do hope they love it and I would be very happy to help them add more pieces of my abstract and mixed media art work to their collection!


  1. That’s a very good question. As “the photographer” I usually don’t end up in photos and don’t think to suggest being in photos with other people. It’s silly we didn’t do a photo together. That’s great your painting sold. Congratulations. Laurie says she’s with you on wanting to know who buy’s one’s paintings.

  2. Hi Tiffany,-
    Thanks for the ‘follow’, and I enclose a ‘welcome present’:

    Please promise me that you will see it?! (You will never regret it!) And plese do yourself a favour:
    Look at it in a ‘full screen mode’ and please find a screen as large as possible!!! (A phone won’t do!)
    I recommend 50 inches or even larger! It will present you with the very best of what Norway has to offer!
    That said: You’ll find another 8000 pictures from Norway at my blog – nearly all in ‘full screen’. Please enjoy!

    1. Wow!!! I watched the whole video, then made my husband come watch it with me again! I have had friends from Norway, but I never really explored. This is a wonderful introduction, thank you!!
