It happens at the oddest hours. James and Linda Ries' collection of California paintings, among the best of its era and region, seem to whisper for them. "We will very often wake up at 2 in the morning, get up and rearrange the paintings," James Ries explains. "It's quiet. The phone isn't ringing. It's wonderful to be able to pad around the house and move things around. You can't help yourself; it's a very compelling thing."

The route from the street to Jim and Linda Ries' front door leads through a fragrant, tree-shaded court, where water music drowns traffic noise and vine-clad walls block out any evidence of neighbors.
