It was inky black when I left this morning, but I didn’t feel cold wearing my thermals and pure wool, thick socks.
My first visitor were two women, who had already purchased my some of my art at Peppercorn Gallery in Richmond https://www.peppercorngallery.com.au/ . They bought a framed print of “Lazy Days”, and a “Double Date” and “Bunk Beds” tote bags.
I met a Canadian couple from Calgary. He was wearing a Canadian rugby hoodie. Apparently, rugby is becoming a popular sport in Canada. They purchased a “Salamanca Saturdays” tote bag.
A young couple from Melbourne visited the stall. As she was looking more closely and perusing my art, she said that my gum leaves look familiar and that she thinks she has bought some of my art. It turned out that she had bought two small original paintings from my stall about six years ago. She has them framed and loves them she told me. They left with four prints.
Another visitor bought “The Bun” and “Bunk Beds” prints for her friend, who loves cockatoos and wombats.
A Swan supporter, (an AFL team, the Sydney Swans) dressed in the red and white footy shirt, purchased “Graduation Siesta” and “Share House” for her partner who is graduating soon.
A lady, who lives in Townsville, purchased three “Glamour Girls” prints for herself and two girlfriends. They went to school together in Townsville and are catching up in Tassie. One now lives in Dubai and the other in Toowoomba, Queensland. https://www.tr.qld.gov.au/ar2017/our-region/52-toowoomba-region-overview-2
A family visiting from New Zealand, purchased a “Lost Worlds” print. The mother grew up in Tasmania and walked the Lost World Track on kunanyi when she was in high school. It was an outdoor adventure excursion. You can’t actually ‘walk’ the Lost World track as it is mainly scrambling over boulders and trying to spot the next orange triangle to find which boulder you have to climb next. Several hours later, you reach this amazing open space, surrounded by the mountain’s glorious organ pipe rock formation.
See you next week. I hope your week goes well.
Take care, from Patricia (PJ) www.pjpaintings.com

It’s so hard for me to imagine it being winter there when we are starting summer here!
I know! It’s been especially difficult when I’m packing my suitcase in the winter here to visit the northern hemisphere. I have to keep reminding myself to think “summer”. lol
