Once again, I am surprised to have found inspiration in a post office muralist. Today’s artist, Aiden Lassell Ripley, is the kind of artist my dad would have loved. The guy was a conversationist — no, no he wasn’t, he was a conservationist. Well, he may have been a conversationist, too. He painted boatloads (not literally, though he did paint boats) of pheasants and water fowl.
Ripley made two post office murals (according to Wikipedia): Paul Revere’s Ride (Boston, Massachusetts) and Paul Revere’s Ride (Lexington, Massachusetts). Sound fishy? Yeah. It’s one mural (the mural was made for the Lexington Branch of the Boston post office).
