Tropic Dreams (Limited Edition) Steve Barton Art in “Wavy” Frame From World-Renowned Painter Available at Marcus Ashley Art Gallery in South Lake Tahoe
“If my paintings make you smile then you get it.” – Steve Barton
The allure of Steve Barton art is not confined to art circles or among waterscape aficionados. His vintage vehicle series is a temptation that even the most jaded of car collectors find difficult to resist. These oil paintings inevitably find their way into man caves, urban watering holes, country clubs, auto showrooms, and above the fireplace of grand estates. The complete repertoire is found only at Marcus Ashley Gallery.
Tropic Dreams is one of these pieces where the focal point is an old pickup truck stained fiery red, Barton’s much-loved color. Parked on the ecru shore, it provides a lovely contrast to the quiet hues of the aquamarine sea and sky, emerald palm fronds, and white blooms. The artist’s signature trope, the tranquil life on the beach, transforms into a magical excursion invitation with the boat poised to sail on the shoreline.
This loose impressionistic canvas is mounted on Barton’s trademark “Wavy” frame. Its rippling contours bestow natural shadows on the artist’s eager brushstrokes and heartfelt textures. The result is a change in tone as the scenery is viewed from various angles.
