 The painting I inherited from my Grandfather.   My Grandfather worked at the San Clemente Post Office to support his wife and four kids. He was the son of an Italian immigrant who hung homemade sausages in the basement to cure, gathered dandelion greens, watercress from creeks and clams from the seashore. He grew citrus trees, basil, and tomatoes until his 96th year when he passed.  He was a competitive boxer and a pianist. He met my grandmother Hazel playing piano in a club, she was Ginger Roger's understudy. My Grandfather fought in World War II and my father was born while he was over there. All three of his sons are trouble. His daughter is a saint. He published a novel in retirement. He was also a painter, mostly rustic Italian landscapes.  This is a painting he kept in his bedroom, he meditated on it repeating his mantra.  This series of  paintings I have made are inspired by this painting of his, and his spirit...
