Window to Paradise (Limited Edition) Steve Barton Art in “Wavy” Frame From World-Famous Painter Available at Marcus Ashley Gallery in South Lake Tahoe
“I am a second generation artist and grew up on oils. Even as I continue to grow as an artist, [my] old habits never die.” – Steve Barton
Lake Tahoe is a melting pot of extremely diverse individuals. Nature lovers, outdoor sports enthusiasts, photographers, frequent travelers, art collectors, and entrepreneurs rub elbows in the environs of North America’s third deepest lake. Marcus Ashley Gallery is one of the places where they converge, and its enviable repertoire of Steve Barton art is one of the reasons. The artist’s authentic illustrations of the lake’s sunny California side are dazzling souvenirs of the scenic destination,
Window to Paradise is a loose impressionistic peek into the said habitat. Framed by Barton’s hallmark palm trees and brightly colored flowers, the scene infuses a feeling of looking out through a casement. A picturesque interpretation of his signature peaceful life on the beach theme, it incorporates two homey cabins which lend an intimacy to the vast expanse of sea and sky. The artist’s bold brushwork and dense composition elevate the scenery to a whimsical level.
