Charleston Art Auction - Part 2


I'm back from Charleston - as you can see Mother Nature was very good to me during the entire three days. Warm afternoons, cool nights and crystal-clear skies. Lucky me. They don't call it the Holy City for nothing - you take ten steps and there's a church. It's a beautiful city.



The auction was a great experience - I was captivated for the entire two and a half hours. It was manic. Lightning fast. I've never seen anything like it. And I'm so proud to report both of my paintings sold. I am so proud.



So....... I'm happily home for a good while and it's time to get to work with new ideas and new paintings ahead.

Way to go girl! Don't be surprised though, I'll bet there was some heavy competition for them!

Glad you've got some 'home time' now! Congratulations on your paintings being sold - they were so strong, compositionally, and framed so nicely - whoever bought them were the lucky ones!

I'm stunned to think you could think your paintings wouldn't sell. If you had a 100 there they would have all sold.

Congratulations Karin!

Auctions are big fun.
I love the frenzy!
It gets everyone motivated to buy.
Not hard when the art is so exceptional.

Omagosh!!!
This is so bizarre, but after I posted my last comment I went to check the mailbox and I was accepted into my my first ever BIG art auction, too!
Must be something in the wind... : )
