'Reindeer' is an original watercolor painting, signed by the artist in the lower right corner. As the sun rises over a blue and green mountain range, a reindeer scans the snow-covered horizon of the tundra. Barnett's use of watercolor is minimalistic, allowing the untouched areas of the canvas to imitate snow and the reindeer's stark and branching antlers to mimic leafless trees during the winter months. When color does appear, it is used to depict the reflection of the sun's light off of a frozen river.
