My fingertips were cold setting up the gazebo while a noisy and raucous group of Yellow crested cockatoos circled overhead. The sky was bright blue and then the sunshine arrived and it felt beautiful.
A couple from Brisbane bought a ‘Two to Tango’ print as an engagement present for “a couple that has everything”. They were really pleased to find something unique and that they think the couple will love.
A lady from Brisbane purchased ‘Lost Worlds’. It was her first time visiting Tassie and her first piece of art from Tasmania. She said that she tries to buy a piece of art from the places that she travels to.
A couple from Hong Kong purchased ‘Sea Life’. A tourist from Minnesota, USA, will be adorning her desk with a 4”x6” ‘Who, Who, Who are You?’ print. A young couple bought an A-4 sized print of ‘Who, Who, Who are You? II’ to post to her sister living in the UK.
A man, who has purchased a hotel on Macquarie Street in Hobart, Tasmania, bought several framed prints to brighten some of the rooms. A daughter, from Melbourne, bought a ‘Double Date III’ tote bag and pouch for her mother’s 70th birthday. Her mother loves Superb-fairy wrens.
A young couple from Sydney, back from doing the Overland Track, where they were lucky enough to avoid rain and see snow, purchased a ‘Scarlet Robins’ print. An Ohio, USA, student purchased an extra small ‘Suspended’ print. She’s attending university in Sydney.
A couple from Perth will be taking back with them a ‘Poppy Fields’ print. They love Cary Lewincamp and have all of his CDs including the one with the cover that I illustrated.
Grandparents that bought a White Faced Scops Owls print for their very unwell newborn granddaughter 3 years ago re-visited the stall. She was born with her intestines on the outside. She locked eyes with the owls and smiled. That was little Olivia’s first smile. It brought tears to the grandmother’s eyes just telling me the story again. She had emailed me with the moving story, which was so nice to read. Three years on and Olivia is doing great they said.
The whale and the Tango prints (Two to Tango and Taking a Dip) were the most popular this weekend.
A thought to ponder: “A picture is a poem without words” – Horace
