Land of Little Rain takes its name from the book of the same title by author Mary Austin. Many thanks to both Austin and the landscape that inspired her – the same environs that have given me so much artistic fuel. If you want to familiarize yourself with the inspiration for this piece, take a drive one Highway 395 through the Owens Valley region of California – it’s a land like no other.
