Today was another cold start at Salamanca Market but the sun was out, and with a predicted high of 13 degrees and school holidays, the people came. Early in the morning, I had a few visits from teachers attending the Reading and Literacy Conference taking place in Hobart. Surprise-surprise most of them bought Story time prints!
A family purchased a “Spanish Eyes (Red)” print for their Spanish exchange student living with them. A couple, who just sold their house in Brisbane to move closer to their daughter, living in Emu Park, Queensland, purchased a “Story time” print. They’re very keen to hang an emu painting in their new house in Emu Park. And another “Story time” print was bought and this one will be travelling to South Africa.
A lady from Wollongong showed her friend the prints that she bought when she was in Tassie last year. She had “Off to the Races” and “Hayride” framed and they are hanging up in her granny flat.
Two Quink Ink platypus and a Tassie Devil were purchased today. I have to try to paint more during the week.
Quite a few locals stopped by the stall today, too. They bought a “Poppy Fields”, “Snowbirds”, “Rising Above it” and “Unfurling” prints.
A group of dressed up young ladies went through the market today. I don’t know where they came from, or where they were going or why they were dressed up. Lots of unanswered questions.
Today’s best seller is: Story time
A thought to ponder: To see we must forget the name of the thing we are looking at – Claude Monet This saying really resonates with me. Many times I fall into the trap of listening to my brain instead of my eye and then I draw the perspective incorrectly.
Wishing you many happy, creative moments, from the Pjpaintings stall #30 at Salamanca Market
