|Wash Day in Toquerville.
The above photo was taken by Dorothea Lange, Photographer. It is from
the Online Archive of California circa 1953. The little girl is Stephen
Naegle's sister, Lynda. Since I didn't have Carol's image of Wash Day in
Albuquerque, I wanted to put this image up temporarily. I like it enough to
leave it. David Naegle shared this wealth of Lange photos. Turns out if
you read the Archive, that she worked with Ansel Adams the famous
|32. The Wash Line
For the first 16 years, the owner didn't know she had this painting. Carol Hause
Smith, was having Stephen Naegle's watercolor painting, The Mill reframed in
1980 and matted. She received an urgent call from the studio to please come
down at once. Concerned she drove back to the gallery.
Several thoughts ran through her mind, but it all became clear when she saw
the Naegle painting on the reverse side of The Mill. Stephen painted two
paintings on the same paper. He had judged Wash Line unworthy of his
signature or any acknowledgement. The painting was already framed and
the Wash line covered when Carol received it. Oh, my, Carol, what a treasure!
Thank you so much for your generous heart to share. The photos and article
arrived today, September 5, 2006

|33. Elkhorn Etching
Here is an email excerpt from David Naegle Aug 30, 2006: "I actually have an
example of his etching, called "Elkhorn" if memory serves. I'll try to remember
to photograph it and send it to you. It looks to be of some old mining
buildings." An etching from the Collection of David Naegle in Sepia tone.
Many thanks David from all of us who get to enjoy ths work of your uncle,

Mary Stoltz came up with this painting Sept. 1, 2006. It has three horses
standing to the side of an old dilapidated barn. A large tree graces the right
side of the old barn, branches overstretching the roof. In the background
are two additional smaller barns in the landscape.
A letter arrives from Southern Utah University. Mary MacDonald contacted
the Archivist at Gerald R. Sheratt Library for permission to post this picture.
It came today November 11, 2006. Thanks Mary S., Mary M. and SUU. bd
|35. Fish on a Plate
This 11 by 14" oil painting has very deep rich
color in this common subject matter. This is one
of eight paintings sent by a former student and
artist Dean Shelton on September 3, 2006. Thank
you for sharing these Dean.
The muted colors and play of light add intrigue to this

if from Stephen while on a trip to Casper, Wyoming.
