|HOLY NAMES ACADEMY ( Original 14X20 )
The composition of this painting comes from several sources including a 1913 color tinted postcard, a photo I snapped in the fall of 2011 and
several black and white photos of Holy Names Academy that I found in HNA’s “Manakata” yearbooks over the past 85 years. The all girls’
Catholic high school was built in 1890 and closed in 1975. I took creative license painting the school roof, bricks and landscaping closer to
what it looked like when I graduated in 1973.
This watercolor of the venerable institution was painted for the National Historic Convention which will be held in Spokane, Washington this
year. I just could not resist painting the luminous sunrays across the lawn. For me they reflect and bring back all of the joyous memories that I
and so many others experienced during our high school years at HNA.
