The Discovery - a woodland wildflower abstract
The Discovery is a 30x40x1.5 inches semi abstract original landscape oil painting of a bluebell glade in a woodland in spring. It was inspired by April in England which is simply the best month of the year as it is when nature, birds, trees, insects and plants are going bonkers in their enthusiasm to reproduce. The painting is semi abstract in style and shows a glimpse of a pond in a a slightly hazy woodland glade. The colours are pinks, lilacs, greens and blues and look like the impression you get when you are in a bluebell wood with your glasses off - blurry and mysterious and magical. I live in Sussex which used to be one massive forest and all over it, it still had thousands of pockets of trees and woods that are ancient and varied in character. All are different in atmosphere though and this adds to their fascination. I love to walk in such places and I try to capture the thrill it gives me and pass in on via a painting. This one says what I want it to very well I think and I hope it inspires others to go walk wherever they are. Listen to birds, watch some nature, smell some flowers and see if life does not then look a whole lot better :-) White edges, deep edge canvas, ready to hang, no frame needed.
Ice Tiger - a large oil on canvas by Gill Bustamante of a tiger by a w
Ice Tiger is a 40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large oil painting on canvas of a white tiger in a distant and strange land. The tiger is stalking along a branch to the left while behind her there is gauzy fantastical landscape that hints of trees and waterfalls in a jungle like landscape. It is art nouveau, contemporary expressionistic, semi-abstract in style and was made by layering many colours over one another with the final layer being white. My aim with the painting was to create a land where a tiger could be free. And because tiger survival is a precarious thing right now, I wanted the painting to be whimsical and fleeting and strange. I think I achieved this! The tiger was originally orange and quite traditionally painted but has become distorted and more abstract as I added more layers. This is big fresh painting that will fit well in clean white spaces. It is on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed, ready to hang.

Art Nouveau Party Horse
Art nouveau party horse is a 30x40x1.5 inches oil painting on canvas of an Arab horse but painted in an art nouveau, rather playful style. This painting began life as a serious portrait of a beautiful bay stallion. However, it was boring so I decided to see what would happen if I made it into a Gustav Klimt style painting. I added lots of gold and some little patterns and marks that transformed it completely. I am very fond of paintings that show an interplay between traditional and abstract so am now very happy with this painting as it looks like a conservative horse who has gone to a party and is letting his hair down (hence the name). The background and edges are gold and it does need a frame and is ready to hang.
