Bond Chapel Tracery In Gray  
This photo is of the tracery at Bond Chapel seen in tones of gray.  Bond Chapel, at the University of Chicago, was designed by Coolidge & Hodgdon (1925–26).  https://www.artfinder.com/product/bond-chapel-tracery-in-gray/

 It is an excellent example of Gothic Revival architecture on the Main Quadrangle.   The photo is part of my Digital Gothic series of cityscapes.  It  includes digitally altered views of architectural details, including the tracery. This artwork is also on view at GACI Gallery in Chicago, in a curated group exhibit.

My new city scene painting, Trattoria Ten, is at Artfinder
https://www.artfinder.com/product/trattoria-ten-chicago-night-out-on-the-town/

On special occasions, I love to dine at Trattoria Ten, which is a top restaurant in the heart of downtown Chicago. So I knew I had to get out the canvas and paint this wonderful old Italian restaurant

Cobb Hall Turret, UChicago  - This photo is of the turret at Cobb Hall against a blue sky.  Cobb Hall at the University of Chicago was designed by architect Henry Ives Cobb, and is the oldest building on campus.  Cobb modeled his designs after the Gothic style of architecture at Oxford in England.  I am an architect, as well as an artist, and I really enjoy the Neo Gothic buildings on the main quadrangle at the university.  This artwork is on view at GACI Gallery in Chicago, in a curated group exhibit, and is also online at Artfinder
https://www.artfinder.com/product/cobb-hall-turret-uchicago/

In the words of the university website:  “Praised at the time of their inception, the towering limestone structures of the Main Quadrangles have now fulfilled their roles as the University’s sentinels for more than 100 years and become synonymous with permanence and immortality to generations of students. In the dialogue between …  the lush flora and principal architect Henry Ives Cobb’s erudite stylistic choice, we come across one of the great moments of American architecture.”

Blue Flowers at Botany Pond, UChicago
 
This photo is of the fence and flowers surrounding Botany Pond at the University of Chicago, Main Quadrangle.  I live nearby and have often walked through and admired this peaceful scene.  The photo is now at @Artfinder, and also at GACI Gallery in Chicago
 https://www.artfinder.com/product/blue-flowers-at-botany-pond-uchicago/
 Botany pond was originally built as an outdoor research lab by John Coulter, who was the first chair of the botany department at the university.   This art is from my Digital Gothic cityscape series that includes digitally altered views of architectural details, including the clock.
