There was just enough wind and rain to keep me on my toes throughout the day.
I had another visit from my Devonport dental surgery, who is lining the walls with pjpaintings pictures to help calm the nerves of those biding time in the waiting room. Where magazines may not succeed in bringing a smile onto a face, a pjpainting may.
A couple bought a ‘Scarlet Robin’ print to post to his sister living in France.
I had a young man from Scottsdale, Tasmania visit the stall. I asked him where he did his year 11 and 12. Traditionally, high schools in Tasmania go to Year 10 and then you attend a college in the city to do years 11 and 12, but he was able to do the two senior years at Scottsdale High School, thanks to a state government extension trial to help more rural Tasmanian students complete year 12. He’s now doing Health Science at the University of Tasmania in Launceston. He does some drawing too. A perfect fit when describing procedures, he can also illustrate them to help patients better understand what is happening. He is taking back with him a ‘Who, Who, Who are You? II’ print.
A couple from Launceston, who bought ‘Thunder’ last year, is adding ‘Who, Who, Who are You? II’ and ‘The Three Amigos’ to their collection on pjpaintings.
I had proud grandparents of 14 month old, Lily, from Brisbane, visit the stall today. Last year they bought a ‘Who, Who, Who are You? II’ print for her. It’s hanging up in her bedroom and she loves it. She can almost say emu and when her parents or grandparents count the owls, she bows her head after each owl is counted. Lily is now going to be welcoming ‘Duck Crossing’ to her bedroom wall.
I finished this little original last night and it sold before 9 am!
‘Family Outing’ was the most popular print this weekend.

Wishing everyone a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
