OPSU Teacher's Painting Displayed at State Capitol

"Black Mesa" painting by OPSU art teacher Yvonne Sangster.

This pastel painting is of Black Mesa, the highest point in Oklahoma. The painting was recently done by OPSU art teacher, Yvonne Sangster, and presented to the State of Oklahoma.

OPSU Art teacher, Yvonne Sangster, recently had the honor of painting a pastel painting for Panhandle Telephone Cooperative, Inc. (PTCI) to present to the State of Oklahoma. Governor Mary Fallin received the painting on behalf of the State of Oklahoma during the 60th Annual PTCI Meeting held Thursday, April 10 in Guymon.

The painting, titled "Black Mesa," will be displayed in the Oklahoma State Capitol or the Governor's Mansion for years to come.

Sangster chose Black Mesa, the highest point in Oklahoma, because she wanted to paint an area of the Oklahoma Panhandle to be displayed at the Capitol.

Sangster said, "I can say I truly feel blessed for having this opportunity."
