26.  The Chevron Station

On February 26, 2006 I was contacted by Stephen's nephew David in
California.  We had an enjoyable volley of emails back and forth.  He offered
this painting to put up on the webcatalogue of his Uncle Stephen's work.  It is
indeed a privilege to post and acknowledge this delightful painting.

27.  Southern Utah Vista

This painting is in acrylic.  It is signed and dated 1962.  It exhibits great
style and command of the medium.  Is it spontaneous? Not really.  Is it just
like all Stephen's other work?  No, but that is simple, it's not a watercolor.

29.  South Window

Portions of vacant dwellings of the West attracted Naegle's attention as a
subject.  An exterior view of a window.  Shadow and plant details overlapping
the window plus reflections off the glass.  Watercolor, 21" tall by 14" wide,
Detail from the roof shows scalloped wooden shingles.  The wooden siding of
the house appears unpainted and weathered.  Black and White image of this
painting is on page 84 of Masters of Western Art by Nelson.

31.  Fall Thicket
This is the type of painting Stephen was most famous for, his thickets.  
During his Masters he did some like this one.  
David tells me that this
picture was a wedding present from his uncle.
