Lummis Home, Part 2

Like I said, I loved the Lummis Home – just the right blend of do-it-yourself funk, an eccentric with vision and bags of concrete, and Southwestern heritage. Got "Raven Jake" all over it. So here are a few more photos from my big day out. "El Alisal," Lummis' name for his castle, refers to Lummis' beloved sycamore tree, which still presides over the patio.

I think this painting is an "undiscovered" Orpha Mae Klinker original:
