I seem to remember thinking, and saying to Steve upon seeing this piece for the first time that he had moved to a new level of accomplishment and was maybe starting to develop his own style. He wasn’t so sure. Although the human figures in the painting reminded me of his earlier stuff, the statement he seemed to be making with the overall effect was new and more mature. I loved this piece when he first showed me! Our family lived for a couple of years in Tanzania, East Africa when Steve was 12/13, so, another gift for our parents!
