“The austerity of the desert is also uncountable wealth, a hoard to be sifted through...the constant shift from overwhelming vastness to the detail at your feet, the harsh beauty of the terrain unrolling in the distance, the eons recorded in the stones, an endless, ongoing, unfinished list, a wealth so uncountable it takes the world to hold it.” — From Desert Music by Rebecca Solnit Storm, encaustic, dry natural pigments, rust, mica, on board, 7.75 x 11 inches, 2016
