Best of Friends (Disney Limited Edition) Steve Barton Art in “Wavy” Frame From World-Famous Painter Available at Marcus Ashley Gallery in South Lake Tahoe
“I’ve been lucky to meet the most amazing people who have become part of my life.” – Steve Barton
Marcus Ashley Fine Art Gallery, home of the most complete repertoire of Steve Barton art, is proud to exhibit the artist’s Disney Limited Edition series. Being commissioned by one of the most successful global brands is an affirmation of Barton’s incomparable talent. In these loose impressionistic paintings, he effortlessly merges the innocent charm of Disney characters with the mythical aesthetic of his creations.
Best of Friends is an endearing interpretation of one of the most enduring picture book friendships around the world – Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh. The familiar scene of boy and bear strolling hand in hand along a dirt road flanked by trees takes on a new flavor with Barton’s vibrant tints. It looks like spring with flowers in full bloom and the most fiery hues of red, orange, and yellow. His trademark daring brushwork and exquisite composition lend the pair an authenticity that would make A. A. Milne tip his hat.
