In late summer, after monsoon rains soothe and nourish, the desert offers softer moments such as this one. This view looks down into Pinto Canyon and the wild Texas borderlands between Marfa and the Rio Grande. I felt as if I was looking through an open window onto Infinity.

Putting that sense of infinite horizons on a tiny canvas was even more satisfying than playing these colors against one another in the painting.
