To add in he says “I usually paint in my domain, and then Mack sells them in his gift shop for 20$ and 25$ with a frame.”(page 17) This shows how Ivan is usually always in his domain and that's where he stays all the time and his home where he does everything. Also it is important because this setting is important in the story and that's where most of it
