“This mural pays tribute to three influential artists from the Southeast New Mexico area: Peter Hurd, Henriette Wyeth, and Luis Jimenez. Also included are the portraits of SP and Estelle Yates, whose foresight and arts patronage helped instill an appreciation and access to arts and culture for Artesians of all ages, myself included.
The emphasis of my mural is a vibrant mashup of various Hurd landscapes and sky paintings, with portraits inset into the landscape: (left to right) SP and Estelle Yates, Peter Hurd painting plein-aire (wearing the sweater from his portrait by artist and wife Henriette Wyeth), and a vaquero on a bucking bronco in the style of Luis Jimenez.
Flowers from Henriette Wyeth’s still-life paintings and Luis Jimenez’s cacti and serape pattern frame the four corners of the mural.”
