Salamanca Market, September 17, 2022

It was nice stepping out this morning to an orchestra of chirping birds, despite it being before 6 am. Spring has definitely arrived.

There is a Childcare Conference taking place at the Grande Chancellor Hotel this weekend and several participants stopped at the stall. One attendee, who is giving a presentation in the afternoon, bought “Iconic Aussies” and another attendee, from Mornington, Victoria, originally from Peru, purchased a “Salamanca Saturdays” print.

A couple, from Brisbane, purchased “Double Date V” and “Suspended”. A lady from Kitsilano, Vancouver, also purchased a “Suspended” print. I remember Kitsilano Beach well. If you didn’t arrive before 10 am, it was difficult to find a spot to put your towel down on the beach! https://theculturetrip.com/north-america/canada/vancouver/articles/the-top-7-things-to-do-and-see-in-kits-beach-vancouver/ She said she was an East Vancouver girl. That’s where she grew up.

A grandmother from the Sunshine Coast bought a “Lazy Days” cushion cover and a “All Ears” print for her granddaughter. A lady from Wellington, New Zealand purchased a “Lazy Days” print. An original painting of a wombat was purchased for a nephew living in North Carolina, USA. He is hoping to meet him before he is walking.

A mother and daughter stopped in and purchased “Spiky Bunk Beds” and “Home Among the Gum Trees”. The daughter has been working at Whistler, Canada for four years and much to the mother’s chagrin, she was leaving to go back to Whistler on Wednesday. I also know Whistler well, as one of my best friends has a cabin there. https://www.whistler.com/au/

A couple that arrived from Singapore in the morning, purchased “Dinner for Five???” and “Sitting on the Fence”.

Dinner for Five???

A couple visiting from the Gold Coast bought three originals, a pair of platypuses and some gum leaf paintings.

We enjoyed a mild and clear day and it looked like people were really enjoying their Salamanca Market experience.

Art thought for the week:

“He who works with his hands is a labourer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.“― Saint Francis of Assisi

Wishing you a creative week.

Cheers, Patricia (PJ) Hopwood-Wade
