畫廊裡有一個小天井﹐極小﹐但花木扶疏﹐還有草坪﹐在都市水泥叢林裡﹐特別吸睛﹐讓我想到馬奈的《草地上的午餐》﹐那麼就讓我東施效顰﹐邀觀眾來一場《草地上的下午茶》吧!無奈天井四周高牆環繞﹐悶極﹐只好拿枯葉當扇子搧﹐看不遠﹐只好猛抬頭看天空﹐像井底蛙。

There is a small courtyard inside the gallery.  It’s quite small but with some plants upon the lawn.  It attracted me in this city full of cement buildings.  It reminded me “Lunch on the Grass,” the famous painting by Manet.  Why not inviting audience to make something similar to it, say “Afternoon-Tea on the Grass!”  Oh, my God!  It was so sultry because it was surrounded by four tall walls so we took a dry leaf and fanned ourselves.  It was not possible for us to look far so we kept looking at the sky, like frogs under a deep well.
