Daina Krumins' Notes:
 
  My Uncle Martins Krumins grew up near the Baltic Sea, as did his brother, my father. When they came to the U.S. they were baffled by all the waves in the ocean and I can't remember by Uncle ever painting them. ( Like many immigrants, they were also disappointed that the woods here are full of poison ivy and occasionally have poisonous snakes and also many types of poisonous mushrooms that are similar in appearance to edible mushrooms, which makes gathering mushrooms dangerous.)
