Artist says thank you to Dragon helpers, friends

I’ve never worked for a more appreciative city and group of people in my 60-plus years of creativity.

To Amber Britton, Diane Mortenson, Jason Kintner and his crew, Bonnie Bradley, Shirley LaFollette and family, the staff at the city of Mercer Island, Nancy Stewart, and all the hundreds of parents and kids that loved my first dragon and those who already are playing on the new Kenton’s dragon, and my friends on the Island and around the area, my friend Jana Robertson who is helping me with a book about my 60 years in art, my indispensible metal worker, Derek vonHeeder, and to anybody else I’ve missed and Tawn’s crew at Edge Concrete, I will be forever grateful for all the help, adoration and compliments and contributions to my legacy in art. And thanks also for the coverage by the Mercer Island Reporter, KING TV and KOMO TV and NBC Montana TV.

Bless you all.

Kenton T. Pies
