|149. Mueller Park
This signed Naegle painting was done from a color slide. Gleaning from an email of David Naegle,
Mueller Park is identified as a painting Stephen Naegle did for his brother, David's dad,
Than. The offer of a American Motors Rambler Classic Wagon in exchange was the deal. We all
benefit from that transaction, these many years later. Utah Trip #2.

|150. Snow-covered Cottonwood Log
A close friend of Stephen's contacted me today via email,
November 2, 2006. He said, "I remember when he painted it,
and how it took form almost magically as he added the details
and left the white snow." Watercolor. BL
|151. Reclining Female Figure
This small watercolor is of a reclining
female figure. Size from memory is
approximately 6 1/2 by 14 1/2 inches.
|152. Pine at Dusk
November 3, 2006 comes an email from a Naegle owner inquiring as to
details of his Naegle painting. The painting is a watercolor of a barren tree
with a sunset behind it. The owner states that on the back of the painting is
this phrase: "8048 Pine/dusk". Thanks to the owner of this work.
Private Collection, Image pending.
David's investigation leads him to believe that the numbering employed by
Stephen Naegle was the year plus the number of the painting done in that
year. This would be the 48th painting by Stephen done in 1980.
|Mueller Park Detail
This scene is just so inviting. I'm sure the effect of a
large painting in such a small picture format is lost.
However, a little detail shot helps somewhat.
