The Oklahoma State Capitol Building is one of my most memorable and favorite capitol buildings of the many I have visited . Everywhere you look there are incredible paintings and murals that are so vivid and bright. The artwork depicts the history and spirit of Oklahoma as well as it's connection to oil. Many of the stunning paintings were done by Native American artists. This is also the only state capitol building that sits directly on an active oil field, and you can see one of the small derricks out in front of the building which I didn't even notice until we were about to leave. I took a ton of photos in here. The dome was an absolute jaw dropper with layers and layers of the most brilliant beautiful colors. Sometimes I love standing on the second floor and the taking a picture at an angle of the dome so you can see all the layers in a curve.
