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.
A family from Perth purchased a “Meet Me at the Gate” print. There were quite a few people from Perth at the market today. This painting is proving to be popular and people like the title.
A couple from Victoria, with their baby girl named Lucy, bought a “Sleepyhead” and “Spiky Bunk Beds” print for Lucy’s bedroom.
A lady, on her way back home today, after spending 10 days in Tasmania, purchased a “Salamanca Fresh” cushion cover.
A couple from Sydney bought a “Family Outing” print for their 11-year-old son, who is into emus right now, and loves red cars. Nailed it with this print!
A young lady from Canberra bought an “Under My Red Umbrella” tote bag. She loved the brightness and humour of it.
Two young couples travelling together from Singapore, bought a “Silent Disco” and a “Dinner for Five??” print.
Two ladies, with suitcase in tow, from Malaysia, bought an original painting that I titled “Friends in High Places”. Unfortunately, I seem to have forgotten to take a photo of it. It is similar to this painting.
Art thought for the week:
As I work at my drawings, day after day, what seemed unattainable before is now gradually becoming possible. Slowly, I’m learning to observe and measure. I don’t stand quite so helpless before nature any longer.
― Vincent van Gogh
Wishing everybody a happy and creative upcoming week.
