The painting hung in a gallery, in a small sea-side town. Many people came by and saw it there with the many other depictions of life on the shore. Once a month the gallery owner dusted it lightly with a feather but she never took it down or gave it back to its painter, even after years of it not selling.
She wondered why it didn’t sell. She stared at it for a very long time and she decided she liked it even more than when she first hung it.
She took it down that day and brought it home, where it belonged.
