Describing this painting the artist wrote, “This picture, composed on different levels, is a side view of the town of Ronda. Only a few houses of the town are visible, perched on the edge of a cliff. They are the nice houses of substantial citizens. Way down below is shantytown of rude shacks made from scavenged materials, and a few steps down from them is a stream.

“Ronda is built on a mesa and one can easily see the protection it offered in ancient times against marauders. To me it offered a fine composition.

“The signs on the posts warn against trespassing. What little the people have they mean to keep—including their right to privacy.”
