Hello from Maureen, and happy Monday. The first issue of TESS will be available this Friday and on through the weekend, and I wanted to say a bit here about the front cover. Many of you will recognize the cover artwork, as it's an image of the public mural outside the Rec Park Clubhouse completed last year by local artist and El Segundo Art Association president Natalie Strong. The mural is beautiful and elegant, and it cleverly features the handprints of local children, so we thought it fitting for our inaugural cover.
Thank you, Natalie, for allowing us to make your artwork our first cover, and thank you, Sarah Ainsworth, for photographing it so beautifully!
