Island Blue (Limited Edition) Steve Barton Art From World-Renowned “Wavy” Painter Available at Marcus Ashley Fine Art Gallery in South Lake Tahoe
“For me, painting is a way of life.” – Steve Barton
Every member of the Marcus Ashley Gallery family offers a high level of personal attention to each on-site and online visitor. Considered as one of Lake Tahoe’s premier fine art galleries, it displays the largest collection of Steve Barton art. His paintings are widely acknowledged for their characteristic bold colors that can uplift any plain, bare, or neutral-colored wall.
In Island Blue, Barton captures the majestic panorama of Lake Tahoe. Though a stark departure from his signature relaxing life on the beach theme and the use of vibrant colors, it remains a calming piece that catches the eye and forces one to linger. His favorite palm trees are also absent, replaced by the equally gorgeous pines of the basin. Fans of the artist will be pleased to find the familiar clear blue sky, swirling white clouds, still waters, and magnificent mountains on the horizon. Barton’s trademark broad strokes and rich textures transform the scenery from sublime to dreamlike.
This loose impressionistic canvas comes to you in the “Wavy” frame, another Barton stamp. A piece of art in itself, the artist created it to add character to his paintings. The unique shape casts natural shadows on the scene, subtly changing its tone when viewed from different points of view.
