The artists would like to thank the Western Colorado Center for the Arts for giving us a venue and a vote of confidence, Frederick Stitt for his generous investment in this book project, Joel Bass for his masterful book design, Greg Layer for the beautiful frames which house the originals, Pilgrims Process for their enthusiastic support, and Paul Gillis for his luminous photography. We’d also like to thank Tazo for creating our favorite tea, the delicious Wild Sweet Orange.
