Tina slowly pushed Xavier’s stroller towards Bette’s Gallery. She had been in the city for a doctor’s appointment, she picked up for lunch and was now on her way to see her wife. She opened the door to gallery and pushed Xavier into the gallery and smiled at the walls which were currently covered in colourful abstract art. Tina slowly walked around the paintings with Xavier who was sleeping. She was enjoying seeing some other art.
“Enjoying yourself there Ms Kennard,” Bette’s voice came from behind her.
Tina smiled, she turned and took in her wife.
“The art is amazing,”
“Yeah it’s a group show. Five different artists. We are trying to sell them but it’s not going great,” Bette admitted
“They are not big names and even Peggie doesn’t want them.”
“I’ve had an email from Peggie this morning,” Tina said smiling softly
“About?” Bette asked as she picked up Xavier who had opened his eyes and was looking around.
“She’ made an offer for Lonely Nights,”
“The 8footx8food finger painting?”
“Yes, she has a new house and wants it in the hallway, and don’t call finger painting, it’s an abstract piece of art,”
“I know sorry I shouldn’t have said finger painting. Hey buddy,” She kissed his head and showed him the pictures and he giggled at the bight colours.
“You’ve not asked how much she offered.” Tina said.
“I’ve also not asked how your hospital appointment. How was that?”
“It was good, my levels are even. I’m okay.” Tina said smiling as Xavier reached for her. Tina took him and kissed him.
“That’s good, no Peggy?”
“Can we go into your office, I’ve brought you lunch,”
“Yeah sure, you better have some lunch for you too,”
“I do.” Tina smiled as Bette took control of the stroller and they went into her large office she took out the salads, as Tina sat down with Xavier on her knee.
“So Peggy?” Bette asked as they started eating
“She’s offered me $550,000, for that piece and she’d like to commission me to do another piece she wants a series of pencil drawings.”
“How much is she willing to pay for the set?”
“She wants a set of five pencil drawings. She has photos she would like me to sit and draw.”
