The painter had only a few collectors and one of them, perhaps hoping to broaden his audience sent word of him to a picture shop owner. The painter had long known about the shop but never seeing anything similar to his own work there, he gave it little or no thought, perhaps a grunt or two but felt that he should now pay a visit. The shop owner remembered him from when he had shown in a nearby gallery, now gone and she asked where had he shown since. The painter enumerated the places he had shown since then, including this very place here, but the shop owner, as if she had heard only a slight breeze asked the question again. This gave the painter the idea that he could bend the concept of utopia, no-place, to paintings he had already finished and shape some work to come as well and to serve as a basis for a statement he would have to write for his next show whether it existed or not.
