“Botany Pond, UChicago” is from my series of cityscape paintings that feature the Main Quadrangle at the University of Chicago campus. Botany Pond at the University of Chicago was originally built as an outdoor research lab by John Coulter, who was the first chair of the botany department at the university. The traditional grey, stone Gothic buildings in the background contrast with the red, blue and green colors used to portray today’s students in the foreground. The painting won first prize at the South Side Impressions exhibit, Beverly Art Center in Chicago, 2011.
