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!!


  3. That is such a lovely piece with amazing contrast. I am so happy you sold it. Congratulations πŸΎπŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ Tiffany. I am so happy for you. I love you sweet girl. Wp is experiencing all sorts of difficulties. We are all dealing with it. It is frustrating. So don’t feel bad if it unfollows people too. Mine has been doing that a lot. Just enjoy your amazing successes and your birthday. May God keep His Hand closely on you sweet friend. πŸ€— πŸ€—β€οΈπŸ’•πŸŽŠπŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰πŸ°Joni
