ery, and many others, A very interesting and profitable hobby is
that of Betty Finck of the Technical Department. Betty started
painting at an early age when she spent the Summers on the sand
dunes of Cape Cod. There she' painted tyjpical quaint Cape Cod
scenes on shells that she picked up on the -beach. After attending
Brevard College and Randolph-Macon Woman's College she
^ studied art at New York University. . .
Betty is especially fond of painting .seascapes, laddscapes, and
animal portraits. Aside from oil paintings she does textile paint
ing on aprons, ties, scarfs, and blouses; and pastels, charcoals, and
• beautiful oil work on glass\vare. The pastel, shown above, is a
pbrtrait of her dog, Hunter Robin Hood; and on the blouse that
she is wearing is an oil painting of a blue bird. Some of her
textile work was sold in a shop on Park-* Avenue,,^and her oil
paintings have been exhibited in New York and Asheville.
