Today, in contrast to last week (thankfully!) the sky was bright blue and the sun was out.
The day started with a couple from Berlin, Germany, now living in Australia, buying a bunch of PJ Paintings Christmas greeting cards to post to relatives in Germany.
Two young ladies visited the stall. One purchased a “Tu-whit & Tu-whoo” and a “The Three Amigos” print. She wanted a print with magpies too, so that she could have her three favourite birds hanging together. Magpies are coming. I took a bunch of photos of a camera-friendly magpie outside the door of a café. I think it had become accustomed to being fed, hence being so cooperative and presenting multiple poses for me.

Another lady from Berlin, Germany, came into stall today. She purchased a couple of A-5 sized prints: “Storytime” and “Family Outing”. A lady visiting from New Zealand bought some prints for her 1.5 and 4 year old sons. She bought “Hayride”, “Family Outing”, “Emus Can Fly!” and “Glamour Girls”.
Two young ladies from Paris, France, flying back home in two days after spending 10 months in Australia, bought a “Scarlet Robins” print.
A lady, down from St Helens, Tasmania, who was showing her niece from Scotland Tasmania, bought a “Helping Hands” print. She said that she’ll be visiting Scotland next year and that the print will be a gift for a family member living there.
A couple from Virginia, USA bought a wombat and a “Salamanca Saturdays” card as a souvenir. An urban sketching friend came by and bought a “What the Devil?! pouch to take to Iran with her. She and her partner are visiting Iran for several weeks. I’m really looking forward to seeing her sketch book upon her return. Safe travels.
A wide variety of prints were bought today. The new “The Bun” and “Hair Accessories”, some prints from the Unfurling series, “Off to the Races”, the wombats and more. The most popular prints today were the owls.
