It was Grand Final Day today. It’s a big deal here in Australia. The final Australian Football League (AFL) game for 2018, this year Collingwood versus the West Coast Eagles, from Perth, Western Australia fought it out at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) stadium. The West Coast Eagles prevailed.
Despite the big game, there were a lot of people at the market and a lot of people liking framed prints today. All the bubble wrapping certainly kept me busy. I ran out of bubble wrap, so I was cutting open padded large envelopes to put around frames. Some were heading to Bendigo, Cairns, Brisbane and Victoria.
I had a chat in French with a young lady visiting from France. She purchased ‘Under My Red Umbrella’. A student, studying Zoology at the University of Tasmania (Utas), bought a card and two stickers. A lady visiting from Melbourne purchased four stickers, an A-5 sized print of ‘The Three Amigos’ and ‘Who, Who, Who are You?II’ and some greeting cards. Two ‘Off to the Races’ pouches were purchased for two granddaughters.
My favourite Galah of the five or so Galahs I painted during the week was purchased. The group were speaking another language. I’m not sure where the Galah will be making its home.
The final print of the day purchased was ‘Duck Crossing’ for their daughter named Chelsea.
The ‘Poppy Fields’ was the most popular print this weekend.
