The Artwork on Our Pages
We've been putting artwork by various
southwestern painters at the top of each
page since we started the website.
We chose Peter Hurd (1904-1984)
from the southeast corner of the state to
dress up our site this time.
He was born in Roswell, NM and his
work is centered around the people and
land of San Patricio, NM, where he lived
since the 1930's.
He originally attended New Mexico Military
Institute and was halfway through
West Point before he realized he
loved painting more, and wanted
to make a career of it.
