Our first stop on our recent trip was in Oklahoma City, specifically to visit the Oklahoma State Capitol. It was undergoing major renovation last year when we were in the area. This year much of the renovation was complete, but the capitol was still lacking many statues and artwork.

I absolutely love #4 and #7. Just wow!
Thanks, Walter!
Great job with these…interesting compositions, great sharpness and colors.

During my last visit, the building was undergoing major renovations. It is good to see that they have made such great progress.
