It was a challenging and difficult day at Salamanca Market, battling wind and rain for most of the day. I definitely deserved my cup of tea at the end of the day, today.
The day started with a mother buying a “Taking a Dip” greeting card for her son’s wedding in November. A couple from Canberra bought a “Hair Accessories” print to go with their humorous Magpie print. A teacher from Melbourne, who was nursing a broken arm, bought “Bunk beds” and two small prints of owls.
A young lady, visiting from Canberra and soon moving to Singapore to join her partner who works for the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade, will be taking a “Hanging Out” print with her. A “Glamour Girls” print is going back to Hong Kong and an “Off to the Races” is accompanying its new owner to Arizona, USA. A couple going to USA, visiting his sister in San Diego, bought some gifts to take along with them: two “Afternoon Siesta” prints and a “Salamanca Saturdays” print.
A family from Melbourne, purchased a framed “Yellow Poppy Fields”, an “Afternoon Siesta” print and “White Faced Scops Owls II” and “Be Whoooo You Are”.
The table cloths and the sides of the gazebo are hanging inside to dry and bags & boxes are in front of the heater.
The most popular prints today was a tie between the owls and wombats.
A thought to ponder: “If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud. ” Emile Zola.
Wishing you a week full of emu antics and joy,
