## Question 21 of the Cryptic Quiz: “Three is the Magic Number!”

9th September 2009 by Lisa

To win the last set of three Tees from Spreadshirt you’ll need to answer this clue correctly.

### The Third Zone: Grant’s Path

Rod has reached his destination by way of an elegant mathematical arc, so we now turn our gaze to Grant and his love of green spaces. Of course, he’s accustomed to green spaces as seen from his old perspective and not from… the Third Zone.

Grant sits on a park bench, watching the people around him, when he’s suddenly under the impression that it is moving beneath him. The hazy trees around him soften and swirl. The green grass turns blue and laps at the edges of the bench, which dreamily shifts under him–taking on the form of one boat, then another. The faint smell of oil paint, the soft melody of a viola, the distant flutter of sails all mingle into a sensory blanket that muted the midday sun. Slowly, despite his best efforts, Grant fell into a light doze.

When he awoke, reality had settled into a single scene. He was standing on a short dock on the other side of the newly formed lake and a deep voice rumbled up from beneath his feet, shaking the very sky. It said, “Who’s that trip-trip-tropping across my bridge?”

### Q: What three paintings carried Grant to his final destination and who painted them?
