PjPaintings at Salamanca Market October 14, 2017

Ahhhh, there’s nothing like a cup of tea after the market!  It was a slow start today but it got much busier as the day went on.  I think people saw that it was a nice day so they rolled over and stayed in bed a little longer.  The wind picked up slightly in the afternoon, which rattled the nerves after dealing with three weeks of upending-tables-type-of-wind but thankfully it behaved itself today.

The stall holder from up the street was making his mark early in the morning.

There were a few expectant mothers that visited the stall and three of them had Christmas due dates!  Uncanny!  I had the same due date for my middle child but he decided to arrive on January 5th, consequently putting on weight that extra week, weighing almost 10 pounds at birth.  Yikes!

A grandmother from Darwin chose ‘Story time’ and ‘Who, Who, Who are You?II’ for her grandson’s bedroom.

Some visitors from the UK, which visited the stall last week, said that they have come back to admire the large, framed original painting of elephants, titled ‘Thunder!’  They decided to take back to UK an A-2 sized print of ‘Thunder’ and some smaller pjpainting prints.  They were lovely and returned again with friends to show them my art work.

Two ladies stopped by and one said that she had two pet emus, named Pinhead and Boofhead.  They got them as chicks.  She said it took them ten years before they found out that they can eat emu eggs.

A couple from Adelaide bought ‘Black & White + One’ for their music room.

A man visiting from New Zealand purchased ‘Beauty Queens’ to take back with him.  An original Tassie Devil and Koala is travelling to China.  ‘Suspended’ was thoughtfully chosen for a gift for a boyfriend.  It involved a couple visits to the stall and quite a lot of deliberation.

‘Outback Glamping’ was bought for a gift for a partner.  They had not long returned from visiting Uluru.

The Christmas cards attracted more attention today, especially ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Emu’. We are creeping closer to December.

Today’s most popular prints were: Scarlet Robins, Suspended and Who, Who, Who are You?II

A thought to ponder:  “At the end of the day your ability to connect with your readers comes down to how you make them feel.” ― Benjamin J. Carey  I think that this applies to all art.

Wishing you many happy, creative moments, from the Pjpaintings stall #30 at Salamanca Market
