Red Roof near Woodward Park

RED ROOF, 6x6, oil on canvas board
I found this scene near Tulsa and liked the secluded feeling. In addition to painting it, I photographed it from different angles to perhaps use for a future painting.

Arkansas Backwash Below Keystone Dam

6x6, oil on gallery wrap canvas

Keystone Lake and Dam is located west of Tulsa. The Arkansas River runs through the dam. When the water is high enough this little backwash appears. In all seasons, wet or dry, it can offer a paintable scene. It is an east-west direction and just a bit farther west of the wash is the eagle sanctuary. There is a raised platform on the north side of the river and you can watch the eagles across the river as they hunt fish, lay eggs, and raise their offspring.
