Winter Retreat (Limited Edition) Steve Barton Art in “Wavy” Frame From World-Famous Painter Available at Marcus Ashley Art Gallery in South Lake Tahoe
“In this fast paced world, my paintings are relaxing.” – Steve Barton
Deep in the heart of South Lake Tahoe, Heavenly Village is a pleasant surprise of a shopping district. In the midst of the hustle and bustle, one will find Marcus Ashley Gallery, an oasis of calm and home to the most comprehensive set of Steve Barton art. These legendary seascapes exude a magical aura that private art collectors and owners of transient lodgings regard as the most effective remedy to their dismal spaces.
Winter Retreat is a quintessential Barton presentation of the sleepy life on the beach. Indeed, an old-fashioned abode by the sea under a sunny sky is a welcome invitation to residents of cold climates. The artist, a professional purveyor of tropical dreams, makes it more irresistible with powdery sands, multicolored flora, and dignified palm trees. Vibrant tints executed in fervent lines and spirited consistencies effortlessly lift the mundane scene into a spectacular setting.
This loose impressionistic painting is encased in Barton’s patent “Wavy” frame, which he invented in 1999. The unusual undulating contours emit subtle shadows on the scenery, causing it to project a different tone from varying perspectives.
