There was very little rain today, which was a welcome change.
My first customer of the day was visiting from Ballarat, Victoria. https://www.travelvictoria.com.au/ballarat/ She purchased a “Salamanca Saturdays” https://pjpaintings.com/collections/the-world/products/salamanca-saturdays and a “Maggie” print. A sister and brother travelling together from Sydney stopped by. She sells crystals and sometimes sells them at markets too. Her brother bought her a “Salamanca Saturdays” print.
My next customers were a lovely couple from Geelong, Victoria. They’ll be returning home with a “Family Outing”, “Goldilocks and the 20 Penguins” and “Story time” print.
A lady from the Gold Coast, Queensland, purchased a medium sized “Salamanca Fresh” tote bag for an elderly friend. She thought medium was a good size because she can’t carry too much at once anymore.
A doctor, who has her practice in Hobart, stopped in and bought some greeting cards. She told me that she has a print of “White Faced Scops Owls” hanging in her practice and that she gets lots of comments from children and adults alike. She said she tells them “Salamanca Market”. A man from Perth, WA, came in just after she left and bought the same print to give as a Christmas gift to his mother-in-law that loves owls.
A family, originally from Nepal visited. The son wanted to buy “Piggyback” to give to his teacher, so his mother obliged. Her brother has an art gallery for many years in Nepal. She showed me photos of his artwork. (Quality prints of “Piggyback” are available at https://pjpaintings.com/collections/realistic-animals).
An Australian lady, who married a Canadian and has been living in Whistler, B.C. for 40 years, bought a “Double Date V” print.
A Sydney family bought an A-3 sized print of “Who, Who, Who are You? II”. A father from Sydney bought a “Bonnie & Me!” print for his daughter. He told me that she often jumps on the back of his bike for a ride.

Congrats again! I really liked the emu telling the stories to the children! And you drew so many penguins in that one scene. Awesome work! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Many thanks, Kim! 🙂
