This portrait of Steve's only daughter was painted in 1986 as a gift to him while he was living and working in Bethesda, MD and his wife Nidia and daughter had not yet moved there to join him. Since Athena has now married and has her own home, this portrait is in her collection.
West of the Lukachukais
by Trudie Schuyler Barreras. Acrylic, 16x20, 2008. The Lukachukai Mountains are in Northern Arizona, and were a favorite landmark when the Barreras family lived in Tsaile. This view is very near the location where Carlos went to kindergarten at Round Rock school, and it seems appropriate that this painting is now in the the collection of Carlos Barreras, Trudie's younger son.
