This painting is in homage to Jan van der Linden,
architect, artist, and my maternal grandfather.
When I was a little girl, I remember a painting similar to this,
done by my grandfather of an island woman in a red dress
with a basket on her head.
She was walking to or from the local market.
I don't remember many other details, though.
He had painted several works
from the time he spent on the island of Java
when my mother was a small child.
