“I describe my work as impressionistic, with bold colors, broad brush strokes, and thick texture.” – Steve Barton
A painting done by an internationally recognized artist is not only a delight to view in one’s home or commercial establishment but also a worthy investment, especially when added to a well-curated private collection. At Marcus Ashley Gallery, collectors will find it easier to acquire pieces of their favorite painters through an online exhibition and worldwide shipping.
Steve Barton art aficionados can view a large body of the artist’s works in person or online. Barton’s latest, Coral, is a beautiful portrait of one of his favorite sea denizens – the magnificent tortoise. The turtle is captured in a graceful underwater dance. Barton artfully captures its signature calm amid the ocean’s turbulence, represented in vivid hues of purples and blues. Barton is a self-confessed animal lover, and this passion is evident in his eager brushstrokes and the dreamlike quality he infuses into the scene.
Coral is mounted in a Wavy frame, the artist’s trademark. It reflects his recurring theme of the serene life on the beach. With the undulating edges casting shadows on the scenery, the viewer can experience a different tone from various angles.
