Thankfully the stormy weather held off until after stall holders were packed up.
Today, I debuted my sister’s, Nadine, adorable and quirky art.
The first visitor to the PJ Paintings stall was an adult son and mother. The mother bought a “Who, Who, Who are You?” tote bag for her sister who lives in South Africa and loves owls. She thought she’d like the quirkiness of the emu in the image. She’s visiting her next year.
A couple, visiting from Melbourne, stopped by and told me that their Mum has quite a few of my prints hanging in her house. They bought her one more: “Family Outing”.
A young couple from Germany, their second day of their two month stay in Australia, debated whether or not to buy “Afternoon Siesta”. They didn’t want to buy too much too soon otherwise they will definitely go over their luggages’ weight allowance. In the end, they couldn’t resist the totally relaxed look of the wombat and made the purchase.
A lady bought a large “Salamanca Saturdays” zip pouch to store her small camping coffee machine. A couple from Oregan, USA, bought some motorbike riding and dancing emu prints.
Zora, from Germany, who has finished a stint of working on a sheep farm in Tasmania and is now going to be a tourist before working again, in Sydney, bought a “Christmas Siesta” greeting card. She wants to buy a card from each city she visits because they’re affordable and portable souvenirs. Her Australia trip is an 18th birthday present from her grandparents.
Then I met a New Zealander, who’s playing in the finals of the Ladies Badminton tournament being held in South Hobart. I wished her good luck despite she is playing against a Tasmanian pair. She purchased “Who, Who, Who are You?II” and “Outback Glamping”.
The most popular print today was “Who, Who, Who are You? II”.
A thought to ponder: “I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it”, Pablo Picasso.
Wishing you an awesome upcoming week and until next week, I’ll be trying to keep up with the demands of the Inktober2019 Challenge. I’m posting my drawings at www.theunfurlingartist.wordpress.com and www.instagram.com/hopwoodwade
