Bunk bed Trio

I finished my painting I’ve titled “Bunk bed Trio”.

You know the feeling when you can hardly keep your eyes open and you are well and truly ready for a nap, while at the same time this doesn’t seem to be the same case for the little people in the family. They are alert and ready for more adventures. I hope that Mother-Wombat gets her well-deserved rest soon??

I hope that you are enjoying a peaceful and restful weekend.

Cheers, from Pj Paintings

PjPaintings at Salamanca Market December 22, 2018

Salamanca Market operated under sunny skies today. The first people that stopped at the stall were a couple laden with bouquets of flowers. They were doing what they called a ‘graveyard run’ (visiting relatives’ graves). They bought a ‘Thunder’ print as she loves elephants and apparently has quite a collection of elephant things.

‘Double Date’ and ‘Salamanca Saturdays’ tote bags are going to Hong Kong, and a ‘Helping Hands’ tote bag is going to Singapore. Two ‘Lost Worlds’ prints are going to Singapore. The families are not travelling together. One of the adult daughters said that it was going to be hung in her bedroom. They also bought an A-3 sized print of ‘Salamanca Saturdays’, and later in the day, they returned and bought another one.

Parents purchased a ‘Family Outing’ print for baby Lauchlan’s bedroom in Auckland, New Zealand.

A mother and daughter, visiting from the UK, stopped at the stall. The teenaged daughter loved ‘Rising Above It’. Her uncle snuck back to the stall later in the day and bought it for her, along with ‘Bonnie & Me’ because he has a Triumph Bonneville motorbike.

A family, with two young boys, visiting from the UK, purchased a ‘Poppy Fields’ print. Somebody else from the UK, who visited the Pj paintings stall 4.5 years ago, bought a ‘Story time’ print as a gift for his wife.

A lady from Sweden, is taking a ‘Glamour Girls’ print back with her.

A couple from Newcastle, NSW, who are caravanning around Tasmania, purchased three framed prints: ‘The Three Amigos’, ‘Salamanca Saturdays’ and ‘Black & White + One’. They said that they live in a grand old house and haven’t bought art for years because they haven’t seen art that they like, so that was pretty special.

A lady bought a little original painting of two platypuses for her Austrian au pair.

The most popular print this weekend was: ‘Lost Worlds’

Sleepyhead

It is often said that words make a difference.  They can create and destroy.  Words are powerful, how you say something can make a difference.

One word, from the 2018 Inktober Challenge, “tranquil” has sent me on a new journey, creating a Sleepyhead series.  This is going to be a long series because I have so many ideas for it!

I’m not going to have access to a computer over Christmas so I want to pass on my merry wishes a little early.

Thank you for visiting, reading and supporting the unfurling artist blog and being a part of my artistic journey.

From the wombats and I, we wish you a fuzzy-warm, happy and safe festive season.  See you next year!
