Eight Paintings, scenes in and around Henderson County, now hang in the main hall of Wingate University in Hendersonville, NC. They are hand painted monotypes done on a printing press. Each location was selected as an area that was slated to be developed. My goal was to capture the original feel of the natural topography before development happened, I received a grant from the Arts Council of Henderson County to purchase the printing press. When I saw the contemporary building that Wingate University is a part of, I knew it would make a fitting home for the series.
