Palm Shade (Limited Edition) Steve Barton Art in “Wavy” Frame From World-Renowned Painter Available at Marcus Ashley Art Gallery in South Lake Tahoe
“I fell in love with the palm trees of Southern California. They are a perfect complement to the sand and water.” – Steve Barton
Art lovers and Tahoe visitors will be pleased to discover that the district is not only about cable cars, casinos, watersports, and mountain climbing. A stroll along the cobblestone sidewalks of Heavenly Village leads to the Marcus Ashley Gallery. Guests are welcome to browse, learn about, and shop for fine art. Seascape painting enthusiasts will find gratification in the gallery’s complete collection of Steve Barton art.
One of these loose impressionistic pieces is Palm Shade, a variation in Barton’s recurring subject of the calm life on the beach. The artist’s beloved palm tree, which inspired him to fix his attention on tropical sceneries, dominates the scene. A profusion of brightly colored flowers and two old-fashioned boats take shelter in its shadows. Meanwhile, vibrant hues on the sand, sea, skies, and mountain on the horizon complete the brilliant setting. These are Barton trademarks presented in his signature powerful lines and potent textures, setting a magical tone while also inviting viewers to head out on an adventure.
