Leanne Barrett: March Suitcase Rummage (Art, Not Apart)

March Suitcase Rummage (Art, Not Apart)

The first Suitcase Rummage of the year was part of the Art, Not Apart program and the art stalls were located in the West Courtyard on Phillip Law Street. 

We (hubby and I) found a lovely shaded spot for the day under the trees and I had lots of time to relax and fall into the flow of creativity.

At this stall a new range of cards were available and a few new original artworks were for sale, including: Baby Blue (the original artwork is going to a great grandchild), Hope (the Dove and Olive painting), Easter Wreath and Purple Egg. This market was also the first time two of my original A3 silhouette illustrations were available for sale: Raining Cats & Dogs I and Tightrope Hens I. 

During the day it was wonderful to see the smiles of joy break out on people's faces as they viewed my illustrations. There were some giggles as people discovered the Raining Cats & Dogs illustration and awwws at the cuteness of the baby in my new card, Baby Blue. 

Thank you to the people who bought cards through out the day, especially as it was a very quite day, sales wise. 

The thing I love about markets most of all, is the opportunity to spend time talking to people about illustration and my process of creating illustrations. During markets I take time to create, this helps stimulate conversations with the visitors and they can see that you actually do create the art that you sell.

The next Suitcase Rummage that I will be attending is Sunday 12 May 2019, 11am to 4pm, New Acton Precinct. See my events page for more information.

Here are a few works in progress that I worked on during the rummage.
