Under the Oaks
This is a painting of the old oaks on the Beloit College Campus. I painted it while participating in the Edge of the Rock Plein Air Event in Beloit Wisconsin. Before I went to paint, I found out that my great-grandmother was a student at Beloit College during the early years of the 1900's. I could not help but think that my great-grandmother Ellen might have walked among the oaks. It was a warm and beautiful early summer day.
After I painted, I visited theLogan Museum of Anthropology.
It was amazing! Definitely worth a visit.
