Mr. Evans: Hello, everyone. You remember Ms. Novak.
Ms. Novak: Hello.
Mr. Evans: Ms. Novak has just opened an art gallery here. I’ve asked her to find some pieces to decorate our office. She’s brought some things for us to look at today.
Ms. Novak: I have a painting, a sculpture, and a photograph that I think you’ll like. Here’s the painting. This was painted by a Russian artist that I really like. It’s called Sun on the Water. The artist was inspired by looking at the sea. What do you think?

Marie: How . . . interesting!

Mr. Evans: It’s gorgeous!
Ms. Novak: Oh, good. Here’s the sculpture. It was made by a British sculptor. It’s called City of Gold.
Paul: Is it really gold?

Cheryl: It’s . . . cool.
Bob: Mr. Evans, I think it would look good in your office.
