EASTERN UNIVERSITY

As part of Plein Air painting sponsored by the Wayne Art Center I visited Eastern University in Radnor.  You may remember I posted a video that I made there using my iPad a while ago.  Here is the painting I made from the shots of the campus I took with my iPad. Since I notice the link I posted for the video doesn't work, here it is again.

Eastern State College is a place that seems to have been built all at once, unlike most colleges that develop over time.  All the buildings match and there is an orderly way to drive around the campus taking in all the sites.  There are shady spots to rest and paths lined with trees to wander on.  It is a University dedicated to "the preparation of undergraduate, theological and graduate students for thoughtful and productive lives of Christian faith, leadership and service."

Here is a spot that seems quite conducive to contemplation.  I spent a lot of time contemplating why the reflections did not exactly mirror the scene, but because it was so quirky I enjoyed it all the more.
