I was never paid for the sale of these paintings.

*** UPDATE: I had to remove all reference to the galleries involved as they have threatened legal action against me.
wowz. =-(

Artists (and art lovers) beware!
I have not (and probably will never be) reimbursed for the sale of this painting:

or this big ol' framed drawing:

The paintings were sold at the Aqua Art Fair in Miami during Art Basel in Dec 2008.

Photos of the paintings at the art show:

(The guy in the hat is an artist that I really admire. He had nothing to do with this -he just happened to be in the photo- so I blocked out his face.)

More info here:

They sold my art, kept the money, and washed their hands of me.
Has this ever happened to you? What did you do?
