It rained during the night then Hobart turned on a brilliant summer’s day with a high of 26 degrees Celsius.
My first customer of the day were two ladies from south of Wollongong. They purchased A-3 sized prints of “Meet Me at the Gate”, “Afternoon Siesta”, and “Hammock life”.
A lady from Adelaide bought “Maggie & Maggie” and “Meet Me at the Gate” prints. https://pjpaintings.com/collections/birds/products/maggie-maggie-prints-of-a-magpie-watercolour-painting and https://pjpaintings.com/collections/birds/products/meet-me-at-the-gate
A music teacher bought “All Ears” to hang in her music studio. She used to teach music in the schools but now she’s going to just teach privately. She had some difficulty choosing between “All Ears’ and “Silent Disco”. https://pjpaintings.com/collections/emus/products/all-ears and https://pjpaintings.com/collections/birds/products/dancing-penguins
A lady bought an original painting of cottages that I drew on location in North Hobart, Tasmania. It is going to be a gift for her friend that lives in Auckland, New Zealand. My original painting of a wombat balancing on a red ball also sold today. The lady made an emotional connection with it. I love it too. It’s so cute.
A man visiting from New Caledonia https://www.newcaledonia.travel/au purchased “Lost Worlds” and “Glamour Girls” prints. https://pjpaintings.com/collections/unfurling/products/lost-worlds
A lady from Germany purchased a “Hanging Out” tote bag, and another lady from Ireland purchased a “Hanging Out” print and so did a lady from Townsville. She said that she liked it because it is very different to the art they have in Townsville.
A sister bought “Bonnie & Me!” for her brother that is living in Finland.
A family from London, UK, purchased an “Enchanted Forest I” and “Hanging Out” print and a “Lazy Days” tote bag. https://pjpaintings.com/collections/bags/products/tote-bag-lazy-days-1
A mother bought a “Lazy Days” tote bag for her future daughter-in-law. She is Columbian and the wedding is in Columbia.
A couple bought an Enchanted Forest tote bag for their golfing buddy that they golf with once a year in Bendigo, Victoria.
Art thought for the day:
“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced” – Vincent Van Gogh
I wish everybody a safe and very happy New Year’s Eve and 2023.
Warmest regards, Patricia (PJ) Hopwood-Wade
