It was hectic under blue skies today. The first visitors to the stall this morning were from Singapore. They each bought a little pouch and greeting card. They asked me to sign their cards and pose for a photo.
Next, a couple, from Launceston, stopped by and purchased a “Meet Me at the Gate” and “The Three Amigos” print. One is going to be a gift for her parents.
A “Hanging Out” greeting card was purchased for a teenager, who is always sleeping, I was told. Some framed prints went today too: “Sleepy Wombat”, “Kiss Me Please”, “White Faced Scops Owls” and “Joy ride!”, with “Kiss Me Please” being purchased by my dog groomer.
My framed Original Painting of “Bird Watching” is making its way to Sydney to hang in the lounge room with Wendy Binks’ emus.
“Afternoon Siesta” and “Under My Red Umbrella” is travelling to Thailand and a couple is posting a “Devilish Siesta” print to their daughter living in Canada. Girlfriends from New Zealand bought a “Scarlet Robins” and “Hanging Out” print. A “Spiky Bunk beds” and “Devilish Siesta” is accompanying a young lady to Canberra. Two young optometrists, here on a work week/conference from Sydney, are returning with two A-5 sized prints: “Spanish Eyes (Red)” and “Who says emus can’t fly!?”, and a small “Salamanca Saturdays” pouch. A young lady from Atlanta, USA bought some greeting cards.
A man couldn’t believe it when he saw “Bonnie & Me!”. He has the exact same motorcycle and showed me a photo of his bike. Needless to say, he bought the print.
An A-4 sized original painting of a wombat was purchased as a gift for her sister’s birthday. I forgot to take a photo of it, so I can’t even show you what it looked like. L
The most popular prints today were the Sleepy Head series, featuring wombats, echidnas and Tassie devils.
A thought to ponder: “I guess I’m a little weird. I like to talk to trees and animals. That’s okay though; I have more fun than most people”, Bob Ross (I guess I’m a little weird too because I talk to the animals I paint and welcome them to the world, once I give them nostrils to breathe. My friends at art group find it quite amusing).
Wishing you a week full of emu antics and joy,
from the Pjpaintings stall #30 at Salamanca Market.
