University of Redlands Clock Tower

I decided to try a painting in late afternoon but I had no idea that I would be serenaded throughout my painting session. When we arrived at the University we couldn't figure out why there were so many cars and no place to park. We drove around and around. Finally finding a place by the gymnasium. When we got out of the car the blasting began and the young people were everywhere. We walked up towards the administrative building and I saw this lovely composition with the mountains in the back ground, the roof tops, part of the gymnasium is in the lower left corner (it is a huge building on campus), and of course the clock tower. There is a clock on every side and you can see this from most everywhere on the campus. That way everyone knows when it is time to be in class and they won't be late! OK, I just through that end because it sounded good! Anyway lots of things happen when you are outside of a concert. The police are swarming, (I ran into my police buddy Pete, who has been so great during all the days the artist have been painting at the University), the kids are plentiful (one was very intoxicated, yelling as he approached, not a good sign with all the police and he was escorted out in no time), the music was loud (very loud, I think it was music, I must be getting old), most people looked like they were having a great time. I cannot believe how many people talk constantly on their cell phones, how did we ever find our friends when we were growing up. Some of them stopped by to chat about the painting which was very refreshing to know there were some interested in visual art. Anyway enjoy the art, until next time, Terry
