The Unusual Art Gallery

The blueness of the summer sky impressed an artist, called Mr Hypersensitive. He superimposed the natural colours that surrounded him, in his art and then telephoned his gallery director, Mr Extraordinary, to tell him the news. Mr Extraordinary was overjoyed. He could foretell that an exhibition would be successful.

So, he re-organized his art gallery into a garden. Around the perimeter he placed trees; in the centre he placed flowering shrubs and twenty “Symphony” rose plants. He knew he would receive the cooperation of his staff to get the show ready on time. He placed all the paintings on the circumference of the inner circle.

He corresponded with other art gallery proprietors and soon the guests arrived for this unbelievable show which was praised for its originality.
