Hot Stuff (Limited Edition) Steve Barton Art in “Wavy” Frame From World-Renowned Painter Available at Marcus Ashley Art Gallery in South Lake Tahoe
“I mix many of my own colors to create the bright yellows and reds I love.” – Steve Barton
Marcus Ashley Gallery is home to a vast collection of Steve Barton art. Included in this trove are the artist’s still life paintings that feature fruits, trees, flowers, bicycles, and surfboards. These pieces are the perfect eye-catching focal points in any private or public receiving room. Their vibrant hues will certainly animate the walls of fine dining restaurants and tropical resorts.
Hot Stuff is a portrait of bright red peppers set on a turquoise surface. Though it departs from Barton’s signature life on the beach theme, the background drops more than subtle hints of tropical yellows, oranges, and light blues reminiscent of the beach. Shadows cast by the vegetables suggest a sunny day. The broad strokes, rich textures, and dreamlike quality in this piece are also undeniably Barton-esque.
This loose impressionistic painting comes to you in the artist’s distinctive “Wavy” frame. Its unusual shape mimics the movement of ocean water. The natural shades it diffuses result in subtle tone changes when the scene is viewed from different angles.
