50. My husband’s an artist too.

’Oh,’ I said, ‘what does he do?’
‘Mainly portraits,’ she told me, and then I asked her how big they were and she held her arms up to show me.
‘Does he have Instagram, where can I see them?’ I asked her picking my phone up.
‘He’s called ‘grapeslaroc,’ she said and we all went quiet while I searched for him on Instagram.
‘Is this him?’ I said, finding a guy called S Josh Elkin.
‘Yep,’ said Molly, ‘but he has 2 accounts and that looks like his DJ account.’
‘Yeh,’ I said scrolling through the images of his on my phone, ‘but here are some portraits of Bob Dylan and Snoop, and Beyonce’s husband, what’s his name?’
‘Yep,’ she said, ‘that’s him.’
‘Nice,’ I said, ‘I like the colours in the Dylan. Oh, and there’s Bob Marley too.’
For a few moments Molly and Amy leaned in from behind and looked at my phone until I said, ‘okay, I’m getting cold and I’m almost finished so I’m coming in’.
‘That’s a beautiful drawing,’ said Molly about the house I was drawing, which was really a guest house in the backyard of Amy’s neighbours, ‘have you nearly finished?’
‘Thanks,’ I said ‘almost, but I’ll start to lose the light shortly, and like I said, I’m cold so I’m coming in now.’
