Great Salt Plains Sanctuary Pond

In addition to the distinctive salt plain in northern Oklahoma, there is the adjacent wildlife refuge.  The ponds are fed by Salt Creek and is a popular fly through for migrating birds.  It is beautiful year round (unless there is a drought) but most scenic in spring and fall.  It is one of my favorite spots.  If I am lucky, I may see a road runner.  They are fascinating to watch and, of course,  remind me of the old cartoon I watched as a child.

  1. Betty, this is a nice painting! I especially like the colors in the trees and the far bank. And, I love your brush (knife) strokes!
