There were less people at the market today. I imagine that there will be more next Saturday because Dark Mofo is kicking off June 8th. It’s the 10th anniversary of Dark Mofo.
My first customer today was a fellow stallholder. She bought a “Southern Flow” print for her friend that loves whales.

A couple from WA, staying at a B&B in Hobart, had three of my prints hanging in their accommodation and searched for me. The purchased “Hanging Out”, “Afternoon Siesta” and “Enchanted Forest III” prints.

Art thought for the day:
“When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college- that my job was to teach people how to draw. She stared back at me, incredulous, and said, “You mean they forget?”” – Howard Ikemoto
