“I like the way you match the colors.”
“Green on green on green. Great isn’t it?”
“Not great, but it does have symmetry what with the red and pink behind. It looks real. Like a photograph.”
“Wish I could paint as well.”
“It’s not hard.”
“Could you teach me?”
“Maybe. Possibly. No, probably not.”
“Uh, thanks for the vote of confidence?”
“Glad to help.”
“Why did I even come to your fricking opening?”
“Why, to worship.”
“Need you ask? Me. The greatest since Van Gogh.”
“How nice for you.”
“Yes, isn’t it.”
“I get why we are no longer friends.”
“Really? Because I left you with your paint-by-numbers while I soar?”
What did I ever see in him? For sure, I don’t see it anymore.
Time to go home. Highway Thu Hell is on at nine.
“I dream my painting and I paint my dream.”
― Vincent Van Gogh
