East Gate

The university that I work at is celebrating its 100 anniversary. In the library, we have a small art gallery where we showcase local artists and encourage members of the university community to contribute.  For the centennial, we are highlighting art work that celebrates the University's history.
I've always like the east gate entrance to the main building.  It's tall and elegant and full of windows that reflect the wide open sky.  The spacious walkway in the summer has huge pots of petunias that lead up to the entrance.  This is an exploratory draft of a painting that, if all goes well, I would submit to the gallery in the fall semester for the September celebration.
I really like how the sky is reflected in the windows, and the close up of the flower pot.
Ink and watercolor.

I think this would make a great picture for their show. That would sure be a fun accomplishment to get your picture in there!
