St. Catherine's University
I painted in total seven landscape paintings of the St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses. The concept/texture of the art for the book was built around a famous quote:
"We ourselves feel that what we are doing is a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop." -- Mother Theresa.
The inside spread shown here is of the Minneapolis campus and posed a unique challenge of overlaying a depiction of the campus' historic stain glass windows over the courtyard scene. The window was actually painted separately and built in multi-transparent layers in Photoshop.
