Summer Time-warp – a green landscape painting

£850.00

30 x 30 x 1.5 inches semi abstract green painting of a lake, trees, pink wildflowers and a red bird. This painting gives an impression of a lake glittering through trees in summer with willowy pink and red flowers in front of us in the foreground. It shimmers and blurs and is is abstract but also very obvious in what it depicts. A red cardinal bird flies across the scene making a perfect contrast to the green of the landscape. It was inspired by a walk I had around Bewl lake in Kent. It is an impression of a perfect summer day. It is green and luscious and full of possibilities that are impressionistic and expressionistic and a little art nouveau. Painted on deep edge canvas – edges white, no frame needed.

Gill Bustamante

I am a professional artist based in Sussex, England and I paint large semi-abstract original landscapes, seascapes, animal and bird inspired paintings in oil on canvas. My painting style is a fusion of abstract, traditional, expressionist, impressionist, and a little art nouveau. Most of my paintings are also available as prints on paper or canvas. Art is a communication form. Many artists don’t know what they are trying to communicate and so try lots of different things before finding out. Probably most of us do. Personally, it took me until I was 54 before I found out what the hell I was trying to communicate and it turned out to be rather simple. I am trying to capture a tiny part of the magic I experience in looking at nature, so that I can keep a bit it of it forever by fixing it as a painting on a canvas. I get inspiration for these images by various means but the best one of all is by walking and looking. I like to print pub walks off of the internet for different areas of South East England and simply go and explore. The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun. My ultimate goal with my painting is to one day paint something so captivating that I will not be able to look away. Then I want to disappear into it and find all the things that really ought to be there. It may or may not ever happen but it is a great carrot to my donkey...
