This is a fascinating story subject, and a story well told, but as I was reading. I began to wonder what the conversation in the park, between Sigmund and Adolph was like. I think that would be a great story.

What a different world would we live in if Adolph Hitler had been a better artist? Can you imagine him in the company of Manet, Van Gothe, and Picasso and not the company of Stalin and Pol Pot. I think the war would have still happened but the holocaust questionable. Good tale.

I had a feeling that it was going to be someone famous, Loiise the transpiration of the story turned out to be, a meeting of Sigmund Freud and Hitler meeting was unlikely, but possible,not only that but Carl Jung also. And excellent story Jimi, you have a great creative imagination,well done, blessings, Roy
Typo: Carl was uss(d) to Sigmund's forgetfulness,

What a surprising ending! This is well done, and I really enjoyed how you presented the painting and how it was basically forced on him. The way you describe the artist's personality and their review of it being drab and dull appearance was intriguing. It all made sense once the artist's name was revealed. Great job!

'Lacking in life.' Ah, yes, so true. True evil, Jimi, has no need of life, it resides in a vacuum of cold. They.never lift their soul to the warmth of life. They have no soul. Great piece of writing as usual Jimi. Love Anne.

Interesting thought. did hitler fancy himself a painter by the way? Your story is certainly a surprise ending - if that's the contest you were writing for - but on the other hand, I guess the reader would know the painter's name at the end would be a surprise.
Inventive.

    Yes, Hitler was an artist and had tried in vain to get into the prestigious art school in Austria.

    Again thank you

Hi Jimi, This is a wonderful story and so well written that I have read it twice to see how you formed this and the ending is brilliant and I have seen a few of Adolf's painting and they were unique in his own style. thanks for sharing this brilliant story. Kind regards Colin X

This is so well written and the artist being Hitler took me totally by surprise. I saw no errors and felt it so well written I could offer no suggestions for improvement.

I'm trying to imagine a painting by Adolf Hitler. What would it contain? It might indeed be depressing. Yet I can't imagine him selling paintings in a park. But it is interesting imagining Sigmund analyzing him.

    Hitler was an artist and had tried to get into the prestigious University of Art in Austria when he was young.

I liked the description of the areas and people at the start, must admit I started to get a bit lost, then the description of the painting, the Artists name and your notes made it all come together, I read again after knowing all this and although the intriugue may not have been there, the story was excellent and very well written, I enjoyed this very much and will look for more of your work****kahpot
