Steve has had a long career as a teacher and artist. Today, he paints several hours in the morning nearly every day in his studio. Capturing Sacramento icons are a major theme in Steve’s current paintings and all of his latest work have acquired an unprecedented mastery reminiscent of the classical tromp l’oeil paintings. This painting of the Tower Theater is part of “Sactown: RE-views” at the Sparrow Gallery at 1021 R Street through Dec. 1. Visit sparrowgallery.com.
