Capitol Interior. (#1)

The interior of the Senate Chambers. It's where some of the action takes place in my novel A Western Capitol Hill, in which one of the main characters, Senator Alva Huberman, is a Religious Right legislator.

From A Western Capitol Hill:

Senators continue arriving at their places...By now, most have stationed themselves at their conjoined desks. They’ve returned to their familiar coffee mugs, candy jars, family photos, and signs saying “Go Broncos!” Back to their mini-flags of the U.S. and of Colorado—the state’s emblem: a yellow orb like a gold, shotgun pellet embedded within a bloody “c” on top of a horizontal band of white, with horizontal bands of deep blue above and below. Some legislators inspect the complimentary schwag of the day that they’ve received: a gift box of oyster crackers or a jar of salsa or a cookie encased in vacuum-sealed plastic given to them by a Colorado business.
