Dialogue and Stories

The Artist: ‘But she had an enthusiasm for the arts.’

SHE ‘Jane and Rob are coming over this weekend with the kids. They want a portrait doing. You don’t mind do you?’

HE ‘ Mm.’ (His nose was buried in the newspaper).

SHE ‘Did you hear me? Jane and Rob are coming over? Can you do the shopping and dinner over the weekend?’

HE ‘Okay. Are they staying?’ She’s always got someone different staying every weekend it’s a good job we’ve got a four bedroom house otherwise we’d have nowhere to put them all.

SHE ‘Yeah, they’re staying Saturday night. I need to go and get some more paints before they come on Saturday morning – and some new sketching pencils. I think they might like the sketches as well, what do you think?’

HE ‘I actually prefer your sketches and pastel pieces over the oil paintings anyway. I think they’d look nice framed.’ For some reason the oils always run into each other and the piece never looks finished. I wish they’d teach her at that school how to stop that. She’d be really good if not for that.
