‘Star Lake Autumn’ is an artist’s proof giclée print on watercolor paper, signed and dated by the artist in the lower right. Taking influence from the Fauves and artists associated with the School of Paris, Barnett employs a dynamic palette of watercolors to depict the onset of autumn in Star Lake, WI. Foliage oscillates freely between reds and greens as the autumn sky veils the scene in an amber glow. In the absence of any structuring lines, colors are free to commingle with one another, imbuing the composition with a perpetual sense of motion befitting the seasonal changes it portrays.
