This series of monotypes was inspired by photographs of the walls of monasteries I took through Asia but mostly in Viet Nam outside of Hanoi in the small town of Bac Nihn.  I was exposed to Buddhism, visiting Temples, Stupas, Pagodas and Monasteries. Seeing the lovingkindness and sweet nature of the people, I came back and made these series of mixed media prints using photographs of monastery walls as the basis. I selected the saffron yellow color for several reasons- some of the buildings from the French are in that color as well as some monks wear it. I like combining modern technology and traditional printmaking techniques as well as mixed media in this series
