Steve is a local Cache Valley artist who seeks to do oil paintings that take the viewer to a place in their hearts and minds where fond memories, friends, and family reside. “My paintings are designed to get you started and then nudge you into a full-scale reminiscence of sweet times past. I try to paint just enough to allow your memories and their sentiment to conjure up the tender touch of a loved one, the gentle breeze that cooled your brow as you worked your garden, the smell of fresh cut hay, or the sheen on your horse as you saddled up for a ride. A great painting is one you want to hang on your wall so every time you pass by it takes you to that sweet spot where one of God’s tender mercies found place in your heart. As I paint I am ever mindful that the rest of the story will be painted by you”.
