As I’m sure many of you have noticed, our campus is full of color! It seemed to happen almost overnight. Or maybe it was over spring break. Either way, we suddenly went from dry, crunchy grass and bare trees to a vibrantly colored Green and lush bushes that are bursting with color.
I hadn’t really noticed this distinct change until I forced myself to. A painting project required me to do a nature study, and as I looked closely for subjects to recreate, the beauty of nature awestruck me. (Side note: Do not try to paint intricately detailed flowers. I speak from experience — it will be the death of you.)
I implore you to take a closer look at nature next time you’ve got a few extra minutes on your way to class or headed back from The Caf. You will be pleasantly surprised and maybe even inspired.
