Tina looked at the email she had been sent again, she shook her head. she couldn’t believe that this was real, she was being offer her own show in New York. A show with as many pieces as she could make. She had five months. She shook her head. she couldn’t believe what she was reading. She took a deep breath, before getting up and walking into the house, she went to Bette’s study upstairs, the door was closed and she knocked.
“Come in,” Bette yelled as she bent over her desk looking at some pieces that she was going to be displaying shortly. when Tina didn’t speak Bette looked around at her, she saw how pale Tina was, “Baby what’s the matter?”
“Erm, I’ve had an email.”
“MoKa New York,” Tina pushed her hands into her pockets and looked at Bette who smiled.
“As in one of the largest galleries in Manhattan,”
“Yeah, they’ve offered me a solo show in five months because someone has dropped out. they don’t mind how many pieces because they will put me in on one of five floors depending on the number and sizes of the pieces, they will take 35 per cent of the show.”
“That’s a great deal,”
“I should take it?”
“Yes you should, Tina that’s an amazing offer by one of the biggest galleries in America. Go for it,”
“You’d be with me right?” Tina said slowly. she was scared to do this alone.
“I will be there every step of the way baby,” Bette reached out and touched Tina’s face.
“Thank you, I’ll go and email them a yes, New York city. I’m going to be shown in my own show in New York city.” Tina said shaking her head, she left the room and headed back to the studio.
Bette smiled she was very proud of Tina. She knew that her website was doing well for prints. She was glad she was watching the woman she loves career take off. she wants Tina to have the career that meant she could draw people. She knew that Tina’s art was a draw, she had seen the reviews of the show. Something that Tina had avoided. She didn’t want to read anything negative but they had been positive. She turned back to her own work and smiled, glad that things where starting to work out.
