David Barnett's 'Desert Mountain Paths' is an exercise in using limited materials. Depicting the winding paths of Desert Mountain in Scottsdale, AZ, the composition simulates found art for Barnett's use of notepad paper from a local hotel as his canvas. Zig-zagging and curved lines suggest striations in the rocks and also the meandering path of hikers and other passersby. Barnett even incorporates the Desert Mountain logo at the top of the page into the composition as the summit resting on the edge of the horizon. Watercolor on notepad paper 6 x 4 inches, artwork 11.75 x 9.75 inches, frame Signed and dated lower left. Framed to conservation standards using archival materials including 100 percent rag mounting materials, Museum Glass to inhibit fading and reduce glare, and housed in a gold finish wood moulding. Artwork is in excellent condition; some wear to gold finish on frame.
