A mother and daughter purchased “Be Whooo You Are” for her son/brother. The sister was keen on getting something for her brother. I commented on how nice that was and the mother said that she is always getting things for her brother. She looked like she was about 10 years old.
A man bought a small original painting of gum leaves. He was visiting his son and family that lives in Brisbane, Queensland, and they were all holidaying together in Tasmania for two weeks. They were finishing their Tassie holiday tomorrow and he will be spending two more weeks in Brisbane before he returns to the UK.
A couple from Orange, NSW, purchased “Afternoons Siesta”, “Devilish Siesta” and “Double Date V”.
A couple from Sydney bought a “Salamanca Saturdays” print.
A lady, from the UK, visiting her daughter and soon to be attending her grandson’s wedding in Adelaide, purchased a “Maggie & Maggie” print to go with my “Double Date V” print that she purchased at Peppercorn Gallery in Richmond, Tasmania. https://www.peppercorngallery.com.au/
Art thought for the week:
“Art is a line around your thoughts.” – Gustav Klimt
My very first visitors to the stall purchased a “Suspended” (a humpback whale) and “Afternoon Siesta” print, followed by a young couple from Sydney, buying a “Hanging Out” print.
A couple, who came to Tasmania from Geelong via the ferry, chose a “Bunk Beds” print. Another person chose “Lost Worlds” for herself and “Bunk Beds” for a work colleague who cared for an orphaned wombat that spent its days at the office and was allowed to run around early in the morning before they were open to the public. The wombat’s name was Nigel.
An expectant mother from Sydney, purchased “Meet Me at the Gate” for her grandmother who loves Superb Fairy-wrens and an Enchanted Forest greeting card for her mother.
A lady from Geelong, NSW, bought a “Hammock Life” print. Her son and her used to watch platypus in the river close to their house. He passed away and she said now she’s obsessive about platypus. She told me that she’s going to hang “Hammock Life” in her kitchen.
The original painting titled “A Flair for Strutting” was purchased by a man from Moonah, Hobart. I have actually recently sold five original strutting emu paintings: “Earthy” and another one at Peppercorn Gallery in Richmond, two website orders: “Taking the Fish for a Walk” and “Tiger and I”, (www.pjpaintings.com) and now at Salamanca Market, “A Flair for Strutting”.
A couple, she was originally from Turkey and has been in Australia for two years and got married here, now living on the Central Coast, NSW, purchased “Poppy Fields (Yellow)” and “Leafy Decorum” prints. They had already bought some of my prints from Tiger ina Papera Gallery https://www.facebook.com/TigerInaPaperaUniqueWoodcraftsalamancagallery/ during the week. They want to move to Tasmania. He’s an electrician and she’s a yoga teacher. They are travelling to the north of the state to help them decide where in Tasmania they want to move to.
A lady bought a large “Helping Hands” zip pouch for her friend’s 50th birthday, who is also a quirky artist she told me.
Another lady bought a “Salamanca Saturdays” and “Salamanca Fresh” cushion covers to post to the USA… and then it was packing up and a cup of tea time.
Thanks for visiting and I hope that the upcoming week goes well for you.
Platypuses, along with echidnas, are the only mammals that lay eggs instead of giving birth to live young. In warmer environments, such as Queensland, platypus are smaller, with Tasmanian platypuses often much bigger.
Platypuses close their eyes, ears and nose when underwater. The only sensory system they use when foraging for small water animals such as insect larvae, freshwater shrimps, and crayfish, is touch. They have touch receptors in their bills.
