It was a fun and interesting day at Tasmania’s Salamanca Market.
A couple from South Australia bought a whale print and then they saw ‘Surfing Clifton Beach, Tasmania’ print, which made them laugh aloud, so they decided to add that to their day’s purchase.
Another couple, from Canberra, chose ‘Weightless’ and ‘Tu-whit &Tu-whoo’ to accompany them in their travels.
A local stopped by to tell me that she has ‘Retail Therapy, Stockholm’ hanging up at the end of her hallway that she sees every morning. Her husband bought it for her because she loves shopping.
Another local told me that she sent a ‘Duck Crossing’ card to her father living in New Zealand, who is in his 80s and lonely since her mother passed away. He phoned to thank her and started the phone conversation with “quack, quack, quack”.
A ten year old girl from Nepal, bought a small card from the Cheer ‘em Up series to take home with her to give to a relative. A young lady, from Stockholm, Sweden, purchased ‘Weightless’ and another young lady from the UK, doing her PHD in Marine Science at the University of Tasmania, purchased ‘Entanglement’. She said that she loves Hobart and wants to live here permanently.
Two ladies visiting Tasmania together, one from Cairns and the other from Adelaide loved ‘Thunder’ and ended up buying an A-4 size.
This week’s most popular prints were ‘Weightless’ and ‘Suspended’.
A thought to ponder: “I dream my painting and I paint my dream.” ― Vincent van Gogh I can definitely relate to this. Many times my painting ideas wake me up and the excitement they stir up in me makes it difficult for me to fall back asleep!
Wishing you a week filled with smiles,
