Red Sky at Night: Peddle Bell Tower, University of Mississippi

Red Sky at Night Peddle Bell Tower University of Mississippi Ole Miss Tim Logan

For my amazing nephew, Heath Lemmonds of Dallas, Texas. Heath is a University of Mississippi graduate (BA, MBA). The tower was built in his freshman year, and was near the ATO house where  he lived.

I used several reference photos for the painting, and chose to accentuate the blue evening shadows and place it against a brilliant red sky to convey the university's colors.

The Peddle Bell Tower and carillon were a gift to the university from Frank and Marge Peddle of Oxford. Heath worked at the University Club while at Ole Miss and often served the Peddles.
