On the cover: The painting used for the cover this month is titled “The Old Stock Pens.” Phil Epp, the artist, was inspired by the Ryan stock pens outside of Marfa, Texas. He says, “These pens have minimal use, but they are gracefully aging amongst the tumbleweeds in the wide-open West Texas landscape. I have always loved stock pens and sale barns. The interest goes back to my youth and wonderful experiences at the local cattle auction. It always included a hot beef sandwich and a Coca-Cola.”
