Visitation at Funeral Home
Steve did this as an exercise when he was in Art School. Apples in a glass bowl ... charcoal
Steve playin' guitar on Sea Dancer with Anita and Les at the helm. I tried to turn this photo upright, but couldn't........sorry
"Pink As Used As A Weapon" Another in Steve's tractor series. He was particularly proud of the detail on the tires. I just loved the whole painting.
The by-now iconic "Two Acre Zoning". (Sorry, Anita: a terrible photo of a wonderful painting.) Note to anyone who hasn't seen the original: if you see it close up it appears to be an abstract mix of color; as you walk away from it, you recognize exactly where it is. The title makes you shudder each time you recall it. The painting makes you wonder how on earth he did it.
Steve called this "Dance of the Suburbanites". (He could be so bad!) Three decades later, it is still my favorite painting - and it is the one possession I would rescue in the event of a fire.
"Detail from the "Infinite Worktable with Perfect Light"" Steve painted this after a conversation we had about creating an ideal carpentry shop. It is a gift of wit and affection which I have and will always treasure.
My prized painting from Steve. Has traveled with me during 15 moves from state to state and has always been the first thing anyone notices when then enter my home.
