Brilliant weather for Dark Mofo, the AFL game at Bellerive and Salamanca Market today! There were a lot of people at the market today.
I met a lady that took a direct flight to Hobart from Perth. She came for Dark Mofo and is going to explore the north of the state for a week. She asked if I had a print of a cockatoo or a galah, her favourite birds. I showed her “Iconic Aussies”, and she bought the A-3 sized print of it.
An adult daughter and mother, rushing to get to their flight back to Newcastle, bought a “Bunk beds” print and greeting cards.
Two families travelling together, one from Canberra and the other from Sydney, purchased “Lazy Days”. Another lady from Townsville is also taking home “Lazy Days”.
I met a local young couple that bought some cushion covers for a birthday present for her. I haven’t got them on my website yet but they are coming. They are 40 x 40 cm. I have the cockatoos, wombats, Salamanca Saturdays, Scarlet Robins and a few other images on the cushion covers.
A couple, visiting from Darwin, who have been touring Tassie for 2 weeks, going up the west coast to Cradle Mountain and returning to Hobart, purchased a “Sitting on the Fence” A-3 sized print. Two young ladies visiting for Dark Mofo, from Brisbane, both bought Spiky Bunk Beds.
A young from Queensland that saw Fairy Penguins coming on shore at Bicheno, Tasmania bought a “Silent Disco” print.
A couple from Brisbane, visiting their friends, bought “Hair Accessories” and two prints of “Who says Emus can’t Fly?!?. Apparently one of their grandfathers used to frequently ride his motorbike in Tassie.
Thanks for visiting and I wish you all a great upcoming week.
We had a lively and happy sketch-meet today in the suburb of North Hobart, followed by a throw-down at the Providence Cafe. I chose to sketch this scene. The bright blue front door was a strong feature that caught my eye.
My viewpoint for the sketch:
Take care and thank you for sharing my art journeying. 🙂
