Time to practice a few cityscape subjects.  
This is a little practice piece [4.25 x 5.5 inches] I did for a cityscape painting class. Beck Chapel is at Indiana University, deep in campus next to the Union Bldg. It's one of the loveliest and most peaceful places on campus. I gave this piece to a friend who just celebrated her 41st ...
