Stephen Howard Naegle
American Watercolor Artist

What's New
Oct. 31, 2006, Posted paintings on page 23, 24, and 25,
Butte Apartments, Back Street, Red Buttes, AWS Red Butte
(wow), Sheep Skull, Dry-docked Boat, Tan Cabin,  Wide Vista,
Pipe Springs Road, Arroyo, Barn and Wire Fence.  Thanks

Pages 26, 27, 28, added too with these Naegles:  Abstract,
Abandoned Barn, Apache Junction East, Farm and Furrowed
field, Farmer's Flatbed, Philodendron, Fall Colors over House,
Lost Spring Mesa.  An incredible acrylic, Bryce Canyon added
to Page 11, Number 61.

Oct. 30, 2006, The Jester, On page 7, Number 45,
permission comes from the Naegle Family to post this early
work of Stephen's done in 1958.  It's up.

Oct. 26, 2006, 23 Naegles Located,  1.  In an email dated
the 25th, David Naegle replies that he found 23 Naegle
paintings in the Naegle Family Collection.  

2.  Thomas Loepp Portrait of Stephen posted.  A quick
reply from a query to Mr. Loepp granted permission to post his
1977 charcoal portrait of Stephen Naegle on The Nicolaysen
Naegle Booklet.  Thank you Tom.  Visit  to
see other works by Thomas Loepp.

Oct. 25, 2006, Mushrooms in Glory,  on page 1, finally we
get to see it together.  Much appreciation to the patron of the
arts who shared this today.  I had no idea the logistics of
cataloging and building a website that could be added to on
the fly.

Oct. 24, 2006,  Two paintings Posted, on page 14, find
Coal Car and Pickets in Shadows.

Oct. 23, 2006,  Three Paintings Posted, on catalogue page
12 see The Cathedral, Fall Landscape, and Cabin in the
Woods.  Thanks Jo.  Complete listing of the Naegle Booklet
works is up on the booklet page and the index.

Oct. 21, 2006,  A former student sends three pictures of
Naegle paintings in her possession.  I have to admit, The
Cathedral is one of the best Naegle paintings ever.  He must
have been inspired by the edifice in Helena Montana because
it is a heavenly painting.  Search for St. Helena Cathedral
on the net to see the actual structure.

Also included in the large envelope is a copy of
the Naegle
Booklet containing photos of twenty-two original works
of art by Stephen.
 Two of the works are sculptures, a
completely different medium for Steve's talent.

Oct. 19, 2006,  Naegle Works Pages reaches the 100
Naegle Paintings Mark
with the addition of twenty paintings
contained in the Masters Thesis.  Although lacking images, the
source is reliable.  
Click here.

Oct. 18, 2006,  Second Photo Page added, Sightseeing
Wyoming, Summer of 1974.  Stephen, Monty, and Craig.  
Bruce and Kay Dickey,

Oct. 17, 2006  On Page 14, find Navajo Sandstone -
an 8 x 11 Oil painting announcing a showing in

Oct. 17, 2006  The What's New Page.  These will be my
working notes on additions to the site.

Nov. 29, 2006  Page 55 debuts today with 5 new Naegle
images.  Hats off to David Naegle!

this page.  
Click Here for Page 54.

Nov. 26, 2006  Back on publishing, check out Page 53 and
view four new images of Stephen Naegle watercolors.

Nov. 20, 2006  The Cabin and Pole Fence - AWS painting  
on Page 32 is photoshopped and the reflecting image of
Stephen Naegle removed from the face of the painting.  
To me,
the image is also special and is preserved intact on
Naegle Photos Various Photos page near the bottom.
Thanks to Dave Naegle for the photo-correction effort.  I think
the name Pole Fence fits this painting, because split-rail fences
are made differently.  
Page 16 images posted.  One of the
most beautiful Naegles ever is on this page, Fallen Tree
.  Many thanks to David Naegle for all his hard work!  
Also added today, Page 18 and 19 images.

Nov. 18, 2006  Page 15 Updated with Images,
my favorite is
#81 Back Fence in Winter, which actually shows a wonderful
brick home in the snow and yes, there is a fence too.

Nov. 16, 2006  Update to the Works Catalogue Index  It
made sense to pull the Master's Thesis out and update and fill
the numbering of the works posted.  That lowered the overall
count which is fine, it will help to keep it straight in the future.

Nov. 13, 2006  Barns and Horses picture Permission to
Post from Southern Utah University.
 The Archivist of
Sherratt Library sends a notice letter allowing the use of this
picture.  Thanks to Mary Stoltz, Mary MacDonald, and SUU.

Page 2, #9.  Thanks Dave Naegle.

grew up in Utah and also where he lived briefly in Arkansas.

Nov. 10, 2006  Completed 27 Straight Hours updating this
site with 84 new Naegle Paintings.  
Those paintings are
located on pages 31 to 53, so creation of 22 new pages was
required.  Many paintings have at least a few details of the
work.  Many thanks to David Naegle, Stephen's nephew, his
Utah Trips #1 and #2 during October 2006 have resulted in
much you see on this site.

Nov. 8, 2006  Catalogue Expanded Pages 31- 45,
Naegle on his Utah Trip #2 reports a bonanza of Stephen's
work.  He is still in the process of organizing, processing, and
sharing this information and images.  I too am behind the curve
having posted mostly one image on each page.
Milestone today, the Catalogue exceeds the 200 mark by 13!

Nov. 5, 2006  On Page 30 Zion's Canyon is listed as number
154, image soon.  Email regarding Utah Trip #2 in search of
Stephen Naegles work reports a "bonanza".  Celebration erupts
among Naegle art lovers everywhere, especially Arkansas.

Nov. 3, 2006  Pine at Dusk, Pond at Sunset  Amazing
