Edwin Stuart suggested that we call our first sequel exhibition to the Desert Triangle Print Carpeta, the "Dessert Triangle," because it only makes sense.  Keeping with the same theme, we named this show "Postre Prints"  -- as "postre" means dessert in Spanish.  

Thank you very much Erica Marin and Peter Svarzbein, for having us and showing our prints at the Purple Gallery!

Also, thank you very much Federico Villalba, without whose help none of this could have happened, a virtual ambassador of El Paso.
