This morning was a bit of a struggle, with a later than intended Friday night enjoying Hobart dressed in red and Dark Mofo, and some lingering remnants of jet lag hanging on, but despite this, it was great being back and chatting with people from all over the world.
I met a young couple from Israel. They’re working on a potato farm in Devonport, Tasmania. I met another young couple that are living in Melbourne. He is a Melbournian and she is Swiss. She’s been living in Melbourne for four years now. It was nice to be able to have a short French speaking session with her.
A lady from New South Wales (NSW) bought a Spanish Eyes (Red) for her husband’s office. Her friend bought Hayride because she lives in country NSW with an emu farm across the street from her.
A couple, with a young baby, living in London, UK, bought a Bonnie & Me! print (emus riding a Triumph motorcycle) to post to her parents that live in Arizona, USA. I wonder how many US states has a Pjpainting now??!
Somebody who bought three prints last time they were in Tassie bought two more and a couple stopped by and told me that they have Beachside Chatter framed and hanging in their bathroom in their holiday house in Terrigal, NSW. They said that her mother gave it to them as a gift and that everyone comments it.
A visitor bought Duck Crossing to give to friends who live in Geraldton, Western Australia (WA). They have ducks and emus on their property.
A cruise ship from Sydney was in for Dark Mofo. It’s leaving tonight and has been docked in Hobart for a few days. Somebody, enjoying the cruise to Hobart, bought a Yellow Sulphur Crested Cockatoo ink and water colour painting.
Today’s best seller is White Faced Scops Owls
