PjPaintings at Salamanca Market December 8, 2018

Despite having a cruise ship in today, there seemed to be less people at Salamanca Market than last week. Early in the morning, a tan coloured American Cocker Spaniel came by. It walked just like mine, Charli, nose down and steadfast.

A grandfather, visiting from Singapore with his daughter, purchased ‘Muddy’, a small original painting I painted for the prompt word “muddy” when I did the Inktober Challenge 2018. The painting is for his grandson.

Two young Greek men, brothers, purchased a framed original painting of an orca for their sister living in Greece because she loves orcas.

A small framed ‘Meet Me at the Gate’ print is travelling to New Zealand. A lovely lady, visiting from Japan, communicating through a very good translator device, bought ‘Glamour Girls’ for her hair salon, ‘Spanish Eyes (Yellow)’ for her daughter’s bedroom and ‘Salamanca Fresh’ for her living room.

A lady, from the Gold Coast, Queensland, on a Tassie bus tour, was looking for a piece of quirky art to hang up in her toilet room. She explained that her sister is a very good artist but she doesn’t do quirky art. Her toilet room has no windows and she felt it needs something to brighten the small room up. She settled on ‘Surfing Clifton Beach, Tasmania’. She’s going to hang it above the cistern so that it’s the first thing you see when you come into the room. Her late husband was a surf life saver, along with the rest of her family. She’s the only one that kept her feet grounded, she told me.
 
A couple visiting from the UK, the trip is a gift from their son and daughter-in-law, bought a ‘White Faced Scops Owls’ print to give to their house sitter.
 
‘Glamour Girls’ and ‘Family Outing’ prints are going to be hung in a Bed & Breakfast accommodation in the Adelaide Hills. They also bought a ‘Spanish Eyes (Red)’ as their anniversary present.
 
A Himalayan Mastiff dog breeder from South Australian, staying in Huonville for their annual dog breeding gathering, bought some greeting cards. A watercolour artist bought a ‘Tu-whit & Tu-whoo’ print and showed me some of her barn owl paintings. She said that she did the opposite and indeed she did. The owls were undetailed, beautiful washes, and the tree had lots of textured details. She used sand to create the rough look of bark. Terry Gough, a Tasmanian water colourist, who taught Adult Education water colour painting classes for many years, which I enrolled in some of the evening classes, often used sand in his paintings too.

Lovely Harvey, a former Return to Study student, stopped by. It was so good to see him. It is amazing all the things he puts his hand to, from learning how to juggle, speak Spanish, natural walking and heaps of other things. Also, I had the pleasure of catching up with a lovely regular visitor from Adelaide. We developed a friendship when she visited the stall a few years ago.
When I came home, I had to take a photo of this succulent growing at the front of the house. A few years ago, we received so much rain it almost killed this plant. All this purple liquid oozed out of it and it shriveled away to a fraction of its size. After it’s near death experience, it has quadrupled in size, generated another plant and now it’s showing off a stalk of flowers.

The most popular print this weekend is: Tu-whit & Tu-whoo

PjPaintings at Salamanca Market December 1, 2018

Under blue skies, I drove into Salamanca Market, and where I initially parked my car, is where it stayed as the gear stick refused to go past Reverse. Several stallholders tried to get it going but with no success. At least it wasn’t blocking in any of the other stall holders. Once the market finished, RACT Roadside Assistance was able to come to my aid and with some very firm wriggling around, he got it working. What a relief! We were all too scared to use the same amount of force but I guess he’s seen this problem before.

Today, I debuted a new perspex stand to display my original paintings. The Hobart City Council offered free merchandising advice for six Salamanca market stallholders and I was one of the lucky six. I was advised to get a Perspex stand for my original paintings. I was somewhat skeptical that it would make much difference, but thankfully I was wrong! I sold seven originals from the stand.

The perspex stand with not too many paintings left after today’s market.  The paintings are more upright when it is fuller.

One of the original-purchaser, who bought a platypus and turtle looking at each other, had attended a baby shower where the mother-to-be was given an original painting of a sleepy wombat in a hammock that I painted. She liked it so much she came to visit my stall. I’ll have to paint more wombats, sleepy and not sleepy ones!

A couple bought an original painting of a wombat and a koala to post to her sister, who is living in the UK, for her to give to her grandchildren to help nurture the Australian connection. Another original-purchaser was from Perth, Australia and she bought four originals. She liked my sense of humour, she said.

Another visitor from Perth, Australia, who is originally from Scotland but has been living in Australia for 36 years, bought 5” x 7” ‘Salamanca Saturdays’ and ‘Salamanca Fresh’ prints.

A family from Singapore bought an A-2 sized print of ‘Poppy Fields’ and a framed ‘White Faced Scops Owls’.

A couple from Cochrane, Alberta, a small town just outside of Calgary, are visiting their son who is working at Maydena Mountain Bike Park. They’ve been cycling around Tasmania. She said that one night, she was wearing every item of clothing she had to try to get warm in her sleeping bag. They will be spending Christmas at Maydena with their son. They bought some greeting cards, which are the easiest item to fit in when you’re travelling with a back pack.

A gentleman, who was born in Hong Kong, but is now living in Houston, USA, bought a small framed print of ‘Who, Who, Who are You? II’. Shortly after the Houston resident left the stall, a man from Texas, USA walked in. The two had almost crossed paths. He bought some greeting cards. Tomorrow, he was heading home and taking a direct flight from Melbourne to Texas, a 15.5 hour direct flight. Yikes! That’s an endurance test.

A former neighbour of mine stopped by. She’s now living in NSW and is back in the state for her mother’s 80th birthday. It was really nice to see the all-grown-up daughter too. The mother doesn’t know that they are in the state, so she’s going to be in for a big surprise.

The clearly most popular print this weekend is: Salamanca Saturdays

A local friend and Facebook follower stopped by and bought some pouches to post to her friends in the USA. One was going to Missouri, another to Connecticut, one to Georgia and the final one to Florida.

 

A couple bought a ‘Hayride’ print for their dad, who drives a blue and white tractor and tows the grandchildren behind, just like in the picture they said.

A family visiting from Hong Kong settled on buying a ‘Who, Who, Who are You? II’ print. It was a difficult decision for them deciding between ‘Hayride’ and ‘Who, Who, Who are You? II’.

A young Danish couple, about to take on the Overland Track, planning to take 6 days to do it, bought an ‘Under my Red Umbrella’ print. A young lady purchased a ‘The Three Amigos’ print for her friend in Chile.

A boy, who’s in year 8 and has just moved to Perth from Tasmania, bought a small ‘Suspended’ pouch. He’s finding the heat an adjustment and misses Tasmania and his friends.

There was a five way tie for the most popular print this weekend: Hayride, The Three Amigos, White Faced Scops Owls, Salamanca Saturdays and Rising Above It.

Under blue skies, with Ocean Monarch, a huge drill rig that was towed to Ralphs Bay in the Derwent River for maintenance and repairs, the Christmas Pageant, and a Falls Prevention in Aged Care Conference, Salamanca Market took place.

Participants of The Point to Pinnacle, a tough half marathon, from Wrest Point Casino to the top of Mt Wellington/kunyani, were checking out the market. The race is on tomorrow.

A couple from Carolina, USA, purchased a ‘Tassie Map’ tote bag, depicting emus’ varied Tasmanian adventures.  A ‘Helping Hands’ print was purchased by a mother-to-be for the baby’s room.  It’s their first baby.

A young man bought a ‘The Three Amigos’ print to take with him back to China. A young lady, who now lives in Townsville but used to live in Launceston, purchased ‘Afternoon Tea’ and ‘Off to the Races’.  A lady bought six greeting cards and told me all of them are going to be sent to friends and family living in New Zealand.  A lady, visiting from the UK, whose mother had sent her two of my dancing emu prints, bought a ‘Scarlet Robins’ print to add to her pjpaintings prints.

There wasn’t a most popular print this weekend. The most popular item this Saturday was pouches and tote bags.  Here’s one little girl, who was pleased as punch with her new tote bag (her mother gave me permission to post her photo).

Today the weather was a pleasant contrast to last week’s, thankfully! I couldn’t cope with too many Saturdays like last week.  My nerves would be shot!

The morning started with somebody visiting the stall wearing the most gorgeous, blue felted-wool hat.  It had two beautiful felted flowers attached to it.  It looked stunning.  I was tempted to ask her if I could buy it off her!   She used to live in Townsville, Australia, and now lives in Phoenix, USA.  She bought a tote bag and some pouches to take back with her.

There were quite a few students about.  The university year is finished and people were off on well-deserved holidays. A young couple from Greece, bought “Spanish Eyes (Red)”, a Dutch couple, she is doing a PhD in Sydney, which is focusing on sleep with people with Celebral Palsy, they bought “Bonnie & Me!” and a student studying at the University of Tasmania (UTAS), from Maine, USA, studying seaweed (polyculture – seaweed, shellfish and fish, a proposed more environmentally friendly fish farming methodology) bought a couple of stickers. A young lady, from Indonesia, who has finished her Master’s degree, bought two tote bags for two of her friends, who also finished their Masters degrees.  The three are going back to Indonesia.

A lady, visiting from San Francisco, USA, bought a “Two to Tango” and “Hoo, Hoo, Hoo Merry Christmas!” tote bag.  She said that she does tango dancing and that outside of Argentina, San Francisco has the largest population of tango dancers.  It is a very popular dance in San Francisco!

A couple, with his sister visiting from the UK, bought five different small dancing emu prints.  They are going to hang in the billiard’s room.  Then, a man from Borneo, purchased an A-3 size print of “Poppy Fields” and “Salamanca Saturdays”.  He said that he is going to design his house-build around these prints!  I don’t think there are too many Pj paintings’ prints in Borneo.

A packet of Christmas cards were bought to be posted to the UK.  A framed “Salamanca Saturdays” print will be adorning a wall of Dunromin B&B in Mountain River, Tasmania.  A “Salamanca Fresh” tote bag was purchased for a Secret Santa present. A “Salamanca Fresh” print is heading to Townsville, a “Salamanca Saturday” to Brisbane and Adelaide.  I think a lot of people are taking advantage of the direct flights from Adelaide to Hobart. A young lady, from Brisbane, bought “Scarlet Robins” and “G-Day” and then returned with her friends, who also bought a “Scarlet Robins” print.  A “Duck Crossing” pouch is going to Minnesota, USA.

PjPaintings at Salamanca Market November 3, 2018

Today’s market was approached with trepidation with the weather forecast announcing rain, hail and wind, with wind gusts up to 90 kmph.  I think we received and felt the full force of 90 kmph wind gusts. Thankfully there were only two of them.  When they hit, they were accompanied by screams and crashing sounds.  I had a couple in my stall when the first wind gust hit and the lady screamed.  I think she must have thought my gazebo was going to collapse as one pole dropped a notch, the awning flew off, prints went everywhere and frames moved to diagonal positions. The nerves were frayed but I managed to survive without any real damage.

Mt Wellington snow
On my way to the market, I took this photo of snowy Mt.Wellington/kunyani.  Salamanca Market is held at the base of the mountain.

A lot of small pouches with my artwork printed on them went today.  I think so many sold today because their approximately 10 x 15 cm (4.5” x 6.8”) size makes them a great Christmas stocking stuffer.  An American ornithologist, who has been visiting Tasmania annually for many years, bought three small originals: Spotty Rest Stop, an Echidna and a painting of a Cassowary.  A “Double Date” tote bag is going back with a couple from Florida, USA.  She does a lot of guiding in the Florida area.  A couple from Los Angeles, USA chose a “Salamanca Saturdays” print as their Tasmanian souvenir.

A framed “The Three Amigos” print of three kookaburras was purchased to hang at a guest house called the ‘Kookaburra Lodge’ The couple house Ph.D. Monash University students at their lodge.  A framed “Scarlet Robins Rescue” is going to be a gift for a daughter that has moved to Hong Kong.

A man, who bought four prints from my stall two years ago, returned and bought five more, four dancing emu prints and “The Supremes”.

A girl, about eight years of age, carefully chose a “Helping Hands” medium sized pouch.  Her dad gave her the money to pay for it.  She was very happy with her purchase and her beaming smile was so lovely to see.

The saying “four seasons in one day” resonated true today. The morning started off overcast, then in the early afternoon the heavens opened and the rain poured down on us, triggering the familiar sound of gazebo awnings’ pooling waters being regularly emptied before they dumped on an unsuspecting market-goer. Then the sun and wind made their presence, which was great because it dried the gazebo and side walls just before packing-up time. Then hail arrived. As I was unloading the car, it was bouncing off my head!

A “Who, Who, Who are You? II” print was purchased for her mother’s Christmas present, who lives in Sydney and loves owls. She has a collection of owl figurines and the daughter thought it was something different than adding to her collection but still in the owl theme. A lady visiting from Melbourne, bought a “Glamour Girls” print for her girlfriend, who is a hairdresser.

Sisters visiting from Peru, South America, purchased a “The Three Amigos” print to take back with them.

A young lady, from Michigan, USA, also bought some cards as a souvenir. They’re easy to fit into a suitcase!

They are held every second year and she loves that she can join and visit places that she has never travelled to. This was her first time in Tasmania. Two years ago, the conference was held in New Zealand, which was also her first time visiting there. Very appropriately, she bought a “Double Date III” pouch featuring Superb Fairywrens.

At times, one could think it was snowing at the market. Large trees, lining the street, scattered masses of seed pods throughout the day and thousands floated everywhere.  There was literally a carpet of seed pods in my stall, and surrounding sites, with plenty of sneezing and nose-blowing taking place from all sides.

Two young ladies from Thailand will be taking home with them some 5” x 7” ‘White Faced Scops Owls’, ‘Tu-whit & Tu-whoo’ and ‘Spanish Eyes (Yellow)’ prints.

I met a young couple from Netherlands, who are travelling around Australia for a year, from Feb 2018 to Feb 2019.  They are travelling and doing nanny and cleaning work.  I asked what is a male nanny called?  They said an ‘Au Pair’ but that many Australians aren’t familiar with that term so they use ‘nanny’. I replied that I find that surprising with all the controversy surrounding Peter Dutton’s handling of the Au Pairs from France.  In humour, they said that maybe they’ll contact Peter Dutton if they decide that they want to stay longer in Australia. They purchased a 5” x 7” print, titled ‘Double Date’.

Residents from Emu Park, Queensland bought a ‘Beachside Chatter’ print.  A lady also from Queensland, but from the city of Cairns, chose ‘Duck Crossing’ and ‘All Ears’ prints from the Cheer ‘em Up series.  A couple were really pleased with their purchase of a framed ‘Two to Tango’ print.  It is going to be a gift for their son who has taken up dancing.

The day started with two friends visiting from Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. One bought a print for each of her grandchildren: “Hayride”, “Family Outing”, “Helping Hands” and “All Ears”.

A return visitor from Darwin purchased “Spanish Eyes (Red)”. He said that he bought, framed and gave a pjpaintings prints as a wedding gift last year. He reported that the recipients loved it. It’s always nice to hear good news stories like that. 🙂

My friend, Emma, who works at an aged care facility, told her work colleague to stop at my stall, which she dutifully did. It was lovely to meet her. She was drawn to the owl prints, in particular “Tu-whit and Tu-whoo”.

A lady from NSW bought “Who says emus can’t fly?!” as a present for a 102 year old lady, who is still an adventurer. She lives independently and is up for anything. She said that she can imagine her going for a motorbike ride if the opportunity arose.

And lastly, while packing up, a grandmother with her daughter and youngest grandson dropped in and bought a small “G’Day” print. They have a pet emu named ‘Footloose’. They hatched and raised him. The grandmother said that the grandchildren play with it just like they would if he was a dog. They showed me a photo of Footloose. It has such a gorgeous face. Footloose lives with his family in the Grampians, Victoria region.

The most popular prints this weekend were: Who, Who, Who are You? II and the whales.
