I only knew Steve for a short time, about five years, but we became friends and shared conversations about art ,family and politics.
Steve and I got to know each other when we started going to a drawing and painting group at the St.Louis Artists’ Guild, about five years ago. This is a drawing Steve did of a model during one of the drawing and painting sessions. We started a drawing and painting group ,about three years ago, at Webster Groves Christian Church, which continues. I miss the conversations we had while driving to these drawing and painting sessions
Several Years before he died Steve started creating a series of sculpture constructions called Curiosities & Consciousness. The Armistice sculpture was in a show, I curated, titled “Ode to Peace” at the Gallery Within Webster Groves Christian Church.

I used Tempera paint on a canvas which is 24″ wide x 30 ” high. I may do some additional work on this painting.
