"Famous Artist Series: Homage to David Hockney - Sun & Water Spots on My Glasses by the Pool" is a mixed media watercolor and ink landscape painting of a yellow sky with tall green palm trees, red, orange, and yellow flower garden. Part of the artist's 'Famous Artist Series,' Barnett pays homage to David Hockney, who is known for his depictions of pools. 29 3/4" x 40 1/2" art 34 3/4" x 45 1/2" framed This artwork was inspired by a trip to Los Angeles, California and the view from David's hotel room overlooking the pool at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. When the hotel was renovated, David Hockney was commissioned to paint the bottom of the pool with brushstrokes simulating those from his swimming pool series. David used this as a point of departure for this work of art.
