Tina sat in her studio, drawing. Her iPod playing soft rock music, she was using card to draw on and she had bought a number of frames to frame each piece before she would put them on her website. She had decided to do it as a bidding system with a hidden minimum for them to be sold. Today she was hand drawing the view from her house, the garden and trees, down to the hills that rolled out at the bottom of the land she owned. She was making sure there was a lot of detail in the picture she wanted to make these pieces as perfect as she could. She knew she was going to number each piece and knew there would only be one of each so wanted them to be as detailed and good as she could make them.
Tina turned when she heard someone walk into the studio,
“Hi Shane,” Tina smiled at their friend.
“Hi, How are you?” Shane asked as she stood in the doorway of the studio, knowing that Tina had to invite you in, this was her space,
“I’m doing good, how are you?”
“I’m fine, just thought I’d come and see you,”
“That’s nice, please come in, I can offer you water. We don’t have coffee, It doesn’t do well with my sleep pattern.”
“It’s okay,” Shane grinned. “You’re drawing again,”
“I’m making a limited edition set that will be sold, no prints.”
“Yeah it’s a slow start back to normal.”
“You’re feeling a lot better then?” Shane asked,
“Yeah, well, having a massive seizure because I wasn’t really looking after yourself makes you make some changes.” Tina admitted. “I’ve barely done anything but rest in the last month thanks to Bette.”
“She was very worried about you,”
“I didn’t mean to panic any of you. I didn’t. I have baggage,”
“Don’t we all,” Shane said, “I was a foster kid who bounced from home to home. no one wants a gay kid.”
“That’s not true, you just didn’t find your forever family,” Tina said smiling softly.
“You have a point there,”
“Glad I make some sense,”
“Only sometimes,” Shane laughed.
“Oh thanks,” Tina grinned at her friend.
“Would you like to stay for dinner?”
