Salamanca Market Feb 29, 2020

Wind was not forecasted but it presented itself nevertheless. The update on the weather app said gusts of up to 54 kmph, so I had to unexpectedly batten down.
 
I tested my collapsible stool that I bought at Bunnings yesterday, on special, for $17. It serves a dual purpose for me, to stand on to help me reach high gazebo-spots and to sit on for urban sketching. It is light weight but sturdy. My next door stall holder loved it too (she borrowed it for most of the day to sit on).

In the morning, a couple from Perth that became quite enraptured with my art, ended up buying seven prints: “Entanglement”, “Family Outing”, “Hayride”, “Bonnie & Me”, Spiky Bunk beds”, “Devilish Siesta” and “Afternoon Siesta”, and a “Lazy Days” tote bag. A couple, from the Hobart suburb of Sandy Bay but soon moving to the mainland of Australia, bought a “Lazy Days” print.
A lady visiting from South Africa told me that she visited my stall two years ago with her granddaughter who bought a zipper pouch. Her granddaughter instructed her to buy a PJ Paintings print for her. She’s taking home “Who, Who, Who are You II” for her. She’s just turned 13, about to start high school at a boarding school in South Africa. A man from London is taking six prints back with him.

I met a young lady from Newcastle, NSW, wearing her water polo team jumper, but she was visiting Hobart with her year 12 art class, not her water polo team. She purchased a “Bunk Beds” print and a “Beachside Chatter” tote bag.

“The Three Amigos” and “Double Date” are travelling to Holland, and “Who, Who, Who Are You? II” and “Hayride” prints to Taiwan. A couple from Nelson, New Zealand, top of the south island, are new owners of a “Salamanca Saturdays” print.

A couple on a three month holiday from the UK bought an A-4 sized print of “Bunk beds”. They want “Bunk beds” to be the centre piece and put photos of their Australian trip around it.

A young lady doing environmental studies at the University of Adelaide, from Rhode Island, USA, bought “Glamour Girls” and a lady from Colorado, USA bought a “Lazy Days” zipper pouch.

A couple that visited the stall last week, returned after their tour of Tasmania, and bought a small original painting from my Op-shopping Emu series. She told me that her and her daughter op-shop together and this is for her.

“Sea Life” is travelling to Cairns, and grandparents bought an “Afternoon Siesta”, “Devilish Siesta”, “Hayride” and “Bonnie & Me” prints for their four grandchildren. She said you can’t take money with you when you go. True.

The most popular prints today were from the Sleepy Head series, Hayride and Who, Who, Who are You? II.
 
A thought to ponder: “A beautiful body perishes, but a work of art dies not” Leonardo da Vinci.
Wishing you a creatively happy upcoming week,
from Pj Paintings, stall #30 at Salamanca Market, Tasmania
