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 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.

Salamanca Market August 20, 2022

The weather wasn’t great today, but it wasn’t horrible either. It was windy, with short bursts of rain and there was even hail around noon, but the last two hours of the market had blue sky, which allowed things to dry out before they were packed up. Hooray!

My first customer of the day was a local who bought six greeting cards followed by a lady from Missouri, USA, who bought “A Spotty Rest Stop” greeting card. The idea for A Spotty Rest Stop came from an Inktober Challenge prompt word. https://brushwarriors.com/what-is-inktober/ The prompt word was poisonous.

Then a Brisbane couple purchased “Bunk Beds” and “Unwinding” prints.

It was a mild day and it rained off and on basically all day.

Salamanca Market August 6, 2022

It rained off and on, all day long. At the end, I didn’t bother putting the pouches and bags out. They would be hanging up only for a few minutes before I had to bring them back in under cover. The novelty of this wore thin.

My first customer of the day was a couple from Gladstone, Queensland https://www.aussietowns.com.au/town/gladstone-qld They purchased an A-3 size of “Outback Glamping”.

It started with him noticing a magpie struggling because it had some string wrapped around its leg. He caught it with a net, removed the string and then released it. It has thanked him by sticking around and befriending his rescuer. They also purchased a “Dinner for Five???” print.

A small group of young university exchange students from Norway, who are doing one semester of studies at the University of Tasmania, stopped by and bought some greeting cards and an A-5 sized print of “Salamanca Saturdays”.

When I got home, I hung up the sides from the gazebo, the awning, the tablecloths, and so on, to dry and made myself a hot cup of tea. It was nice to escape the rain and wind and watch it from an inside vantage.

Wishing everybody a happy and creative upcoming week.

It was a bit chilly today but there was no rain or wind, so there are no complaints from me. 😊

Once again, as fun as it is interacting with such a diverse crowd and hearing interesting stories, it is always good to get home and put my feet up.

I hope that the upcoming week goes well for you and that you are able to make time for your creative outlet. Cheers, Patricia (PJ) Hopwood-Wade

Salamanca Market July 2, 2022

I stepped out of the house before 6 am into blackness and 4 degrees Celsius to head off to Salamanca Market, which officially today it returned to “Salamanca Market”. During COVID restrictions it had different rules and was renamed “Tasmanian Own Market”, but everybody still referred to it as Salamanca Market. But now that it “is” Salamanca Market again, all the sites were open and stalls returned to their assigned sites, so there would have been over 300 stalls today.

The Festival of Voices https://festivalofvoices.com/ is on and that could be what was contributing to the busyness today. I wasn’t feeling crash hot today, so I didn’t keep track of too many stories. I started feeling much better as the day went on.

The first customer of the day was from Brisbane, Queensland, a choir performer at the Festival of Voices. She purchased a “Lazy Days” and a “Hanging Out” print.

“Lazy Days”

A university student bought a “Salamanca Saturday” large tote bag to use to carry her books and study material.

She was pleased to meet the artist and told me that she loved it.

Her daughter bought three prints of the wombats in hammocks series.

“Helping Hands”
“Scarlet Robin Rescue”
“All Ears”

These three prints are from my Cheer ’em Up series, of scenes where emus come to the rescue and save the day. The emu in the painting titled “All Ears” is such a patient listener that the tip of its beak is getting a little crumpled. This series is available at: https://pjpaintings.com/collections/emus

One young lady was drawn to Tu-whit & Tu-whoo because her grandfather, in Ireland, would pick up the dead ones off the side of the road and get them stuffed. He has a long shelf lined with stuffed barn owls.

It was good to get home, warm the toes, and sit down with a cup of tea.

Setting up in the rain is not fun. It’s rather dismal, actually, but the stall got set up, despite the sogginess.

The first customer of the day was from Queensland. She informed me that she already has three of my prints. She purchased “Dinner for Five???” to add to her collection.

Dinner for Five??? The echidnas are going to have to share a few ant legs each. lol https://pjpaintings.com/collections/realistic-animals

Three generations, from Brisbane, stopped at the stall. The daughter bought a “Salamanca Fresh” pouch for the grandmother (her mother). Little Violet wouldn’t crack a smile. She seriously studied her surroundings. She turned one year old yesterday and they brought her to Tasmania to see snow for her birthday.

It was a drizzly and breezy day, which was better than rainy and windy. 🙂

My very first visitors to the stall purchased two large “Salamanca Fresh” tote bags and a “Lazy Days” cushion, gifts for friends and one tote bag for her.

A couple from Melbourne, who have a large pencil original drawing of twelve birds in their dining room and on their bookcase beside this picture, they have a collection of small black & white original pictures of birds. They bought my little fairy penguin drawing to join this collection. They saw Fairy Penguins on Bruny Island. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-01-20/how-to-see-little-penguins-in-tasmania/8197000 That is where I saw them for the first time but I reckon the best place to see them is at Stanley. That is a stand-out memory for me.

A lady, who used to live in Vancouver, living in Australia now, bought four small prints from the wombat in hammocks in series for her grandchild’s bedroom.

Grandparents from Ireland, visiting their son and family who lives in Deloraine, Tasmania, bought “Family Outing”. It is her son’s family with the three children in the back.

“Family Outing”

Some young people from Netherlands bought some greeting cards, some French men visited the stall and then some Belgians stopped in. I don’t often meet Belgians at the market. I heard them speaking French and asked them where they were from. They’ve been in Australia for 2.5 years and are flying back to Belgium in two weeks. Her favourite bird is the kookaburra so “Sitting on the Fence” will soon be embarking on a long trip to Belgium.

“Sitting on the Fence”

A sister bought a “Suspended” print for her brother and new baby and a young couple, down just for the weekend from Melbourne, purchased “Bunk Beds” and “Spiky Bunk Beds”.

My painting of echidnas in hammocks, titled “Spiky Bunk Beds”

A few originals have found new homes too: an urban sketch of a house in New Town, a Monarch butterfly, a moose, a whale on a spouting boat and “Spotted”. “Spotted” was purchased by a couple from the Blue Mountains, NSW https://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/visit-a-park/parks/blue-mountains-national-park . Their daughter lives close by and there are magpies that visit her every day for a feed. She just loves watching the antics that the birds get up to.

“Spotted”

A lady from Pennsylvania, USA bought a “Helping Hands” and a wombat print. She has family that lives in Tasmania. She told me that she bought prints from me last time she was here and that visitors to her house frequently compliment and ask where she got the artwork from.

“Helping Hands”

Another young lady bought an “Under My Red Umbrella” print to post to her friend living in Ontario, Canada.

That was so nice to hear!

A lady bought two original paintings. One of an emu with a wombat in its back pack and another of dune-buggying emus.

Original Painting titled “Wombat Courier”
“Dune Buggy” I forgot to take a photo of the finished painting. I painted the dune buggy a bright red which popped against the raw sienna colour of the sand. I drew this for the Inktober Challenge, where you are presented with a drawing prompt word for each day of the month. The prompt word for this drawing was “dune”.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a creative upcoming week.

Salamanca Market January 22, 2022

Wonderful blue skies, sun and heat was served up for today’s market.

It was a day for selling tote bags and pouches. Early in the morning, a couple from northern Queensland, Townsville, bought a “Salamanca Saturdays” tote bag.

Bright and colourful “Salamanca Saturdays” tote bags, made in Australia with image on both sides, available at Salamanca Market and https://pjpaintings.com/collections/bags

Then a nicely bronzed young couple purchased a “Lazy Days” tote bag. She was exuberant about my wombats in hammocks paintings. They were from Melbourne, which surprised me. I thought that they would be from Queensland with their golden suntans. They explained that they have spent a week at Freycinet and a lot of time at the beach. https://www.discovertasmania.com.au/about/national-parks-and-wilderness/freycinet-national-park-wineglass-bay

A couple with a large, black assistive dog, that was seeking shade and laying down at every opportunity, purchased “Hanging Out” tote bag. She has a wombat collection, showing me her wombat earrings that she was wearing. They live on the south coast of NSW and have many wild wombats on their property. Their dog is so used to them that he just looks at them now.

A couple spending their last day in Tassie, purchased two wombat prints: “Hanging Out” and “Bunk beds”. They live on a property north-west of Sydney that also has many wombats visit their property and dig plenty of holes/burrows.

A mother bought a “Lazy Days” tote bag for her daughter’s birthday. She’s a wombat rescue carer. A sweet brother, and first-time-uncle-to-be, bought a “Hanging Out” print for his sister, who is having a baby girl in three months. A couple bought two prints. She chose “Hanging Out” and he chose “Suspended”. He said he, “had a thing for whales, my name is Jonah”.

A family visited the stall, and the mother bought her teenage son an “Emu can Fly” print. She said her son’s nick name is “Emu”. I asked him if he likes this nick name, and he does, which was good to hear.

 

An apprehensive pillion emu – “Emus can Fly!”

I sold three original paintings today. Two urban sketches and an echidna digging up a bit of a mess.

First urban sketch sold was this one of a house in New Town. She said she couldn’t put it down, so she had to buy it. She appreciated that it is more difficult to omit areas to paint than to paint the entire picture. Omissions involves many more decisions.
The next one to sell was this urban sketch of the Elizabeth Street Post Office, Hobart, drawn and painted sitting in the middle of Franklin Square, behind the fountain and monument.
The third original painting to sell was this painting. It’s hard not to be messy when you’re an echidna and need to dig in old, rotting fallen trees to find ants for dinner

Late in the day, a mother and young son visited the stall and young Fynn chose a “What the Devil?!” pouch…. and then packing-up-time soon snuck up and that’s exactly what I did, packed up, went home, then unpacked and then finally sat down and put my feet up.
