through long-term studies. Hilltop families supported me in my learning,
especially Alice Shobe and Eric Svaren, Annie Phalen and Peter Moser,
Daphne Guericke and Axel Schweiger, Genna Gormley, Kathryn Keller,
Linda Higgins, and Nancy Norman.

Megan Arnim coached me about clay; Flint Crumpacker coached me
about oil and chalk pastels. My editors at Redleaf, Kara Lomen, Laurie
Herrmann, and Amanda Hane, offered important insight and challenge;
my thanks to Alyssa Lochner, Jim Handrigan, and Erin Kirk New for
bringing the second edition to life. Bill Bigelow has taught me much about
writing, teaching, and living with integrity. Margie Carter held me and this
book, and continues to be a generous and wise companion for mind, heart,
and spirit.
