By kind permission of Betty Striegel, herewith are several more views of Pete Striegel's wonderful river art, although these photo, taken by yours truly, by no means do the art justice. Being longtime erudite steamboat enthusiasts, he and the late Dorothea Frye both painted steamboats with a keen eye for minute detail that other artists would easily have overlooked. Several of Pete's large paintings were on easels at the funeral home visitation yesterday and there also was an album containing photos of his numerous works of art, a lasting legacy to those who shared his passion for the river and steamboating.
