The Eno River Mural
1996 - 2014
The mural took me six months to paint. It was funded by Donald Penny, the M. Biddle Duke Foundation and the Durham Arts Council as a gift to the city. The Caktus Group which has bought the building and is restoring it to its original 1910 look has painted over the work. The 40' high x 144' wide mural represented 800 species of native flora and fauna; Margaret Nygard, the Eno River State Park's founding force, rested in the painting on a bluff. George Pyne gave me the long list of plants to include, and River Dave and Hildegard Ryles, among many others, helped immeasurably with the project.
