These paintings have hung on the walls of our cottage,
Casa Majulana, since my grandfather (who built the cottage
in 1947) painted them in the 1950s and 1960s. They are icons
not only of my youth, but of the generations before and
afer me, too. With the exception of the painting of a canal
in Kashmir, they are all original paintings that my grandfather
-- Pop, we called him -- went out to paint himself, on the River,
at Pinnacles, and in Palm Desert.
There are also a few mosaic tables that and a large mosaic
of sailboats, which hangs over the windows.
