signed by artist, bottom left on image in black ink: Joe Mills; on verso, top right: 7/31/02; across center: Dear Susan and Paul / Moments like this are awkward / for me, people's faith, let alone my own, / in the work has been a capricious, something / of an illusive, event - not one held onto / by me very easily. Both of you have been / there for many years now - your faith holding / me up, helping this work to reach its absolute / state - many decades for some to find a place / to root, not change anymore - to be pure. / Your faith becomes part of it - I will / never forget that - / With great respect, / Joseph Mills; by unknown hand, bottom left in graphite: JM-152; by Corcoran Gallery of Art, bottom right: 2002.36
