Welcome to MMXX

Oso mentioned Peter Hurd paintings the other day and I checked him out. Interesting guy who moved to New Mexico and painted the shit out of it. Ever since Mr Chumpo got busy with other stuff and left a giant art-shaped hole in our blog I’ve missed our art posts. AoS and the WSJ have occasional art posts where the painting is discussed in terms of the painter, the times and the symbolism involved with it. I never had to take an art appreciation class in college so a lot of this stuff is over my head. For the most part I know what I like but when I take the time to read about a particular painting or other artwork I often appreciate it far more than I realized on first glance.
