|5. South toward Skyline
This painting was a demonstration during Stephen's watercolor class
at Arkansas Tech in 1971. It was a view out the second story of the
Art room which was housed in an old rock Maintenance Building on
the campus. Stephen refused to sign the painting, after borrowing
my paper for the demo.
|6. Forgotten Fall
Watercolor of a hay derrick, barns, and fencing. The scene appears to be a deserted ranch, great
yellow foliage against a mountain setting, signed Naegle, 1972. In an email November 5, 2006 comes
the information that the machine to the right of the barn is a hay derrick. The only experience I had
was that it might be a horse walker to exercise horses on a horse ranch. Thanks to Cherrie and Than
for filling me in on what it is. We know one thing for sure, it caught Stephen's eye.
|7. Fried Egg Sky
A whimsical name for this great watercolor. It exhibits the talent for which
Stephen was famous, Thickets, or forest, tree, or brush detail in his work.
Thanks Stephen for sharing your talent and your life.
|Sky of Fried Egg Sky detail. This surreal painting is a delightful
display of color, whimsey, detail, and the thicket theme Naegle loved.
