Peter White observes, “In Storm (plate 11), the impression of sweeping, elemental force comes vividly to life through the exaggerated distortions of the trees and road, the rhythmic stabbing accents, and an overall darkened tone. In these, as in all of Andrews’s linocuts, their arresting impact results from the unusual contrast that exists between her familiar and otherwise mundane subjects and the highly decorative and animated style that is used to interpret them.”

Stephen Coppel notes that early impressions are on buff oriental laid tissue, and later printings are on thicker paper.
