46 OUR ADVERTISERS
Our cover art is by “J. P.” Panter, an illustrator and painter, who describes herself, to a certain extent, as a part-time pirate of images, a part-time improviser of ideas, and a full-time surveyor of the culture.

She does freelance editorial work as well as private commissions and portraits. ThistleCreekStudio.com

The photograph on this page, by Matthew Green, was taken at Brookside Farm in Brentwood.
