A heat haze gathers at the base of distant hills; a lone truck kicks up a trail of dust on a scorched dirt road; the cool blue of a quiet river beckons amidst arid surroundings. River and Canal, San Patricio, a deceptively evocative painting, exemplifies Peter Hurd’s southwest landscapes. The artist wrote of his native New Mexico, “I knew, even as a boy of five or six, that there was about that land… something very special and strangely exciting.”
