Market Day


My son Phil and I headed out to our local market early this morning, a clear and sunny Saturday.  This pic is us setting up in the middle of the park.

The day started off slowly, then gradually the crowd built up.  I sold one large painting, one small and a few bookmarks.  I took the details of a teacher who writes children's books wanting to join my art journal group, gave out plenty of flyers and business cards, chatted to a representative from a local public school running an art program they want me to join and most importantly, received loads of positive feedback from so many about my art and its originality.  One of my paintings was sold to an Aussie celebrity, our first Master Chef  Julie Goodwin who was signing her latest recipe book at the market for Mother's Day!  Very chuffed! 

I couldn't be happier about our first day!

  1. congratulations and no surprise you sold paintings and received great feedback. Interesting photo as we can see the size of some of your work, larger than I imagined.

    i used to "do" art fairs and the best part to me was all the positive feedback that makes the heart and soul want to keep on making things.

    1. Sure you can boast! She bought a small painting of a bird - watercolour and ink. She said she loved little birds!
