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.
Coffee Break ll
Warm chocolates and browns make up this modern and contemporary triptych painting. The graduated browns of the three panels set off the raised textured sections which have been built up in multi-coloured layers to create embossed swirls of colour and depth. You can see coffee and mocha ripples in the rich chocolatey colours. This is an attractive and fresh painting that would compliment most colour schemes. This painting is completely flexible and can be hung portrait or landscape style any side up to suit your living space. In addition the three individual panels can be hung in any order. Each panel has been signed on the side to allow this versatility. This painting has been finished with a protective gloss varnish.

Nose bag at ea
Three beautiful and vibrant orange poppies set on a delicate green background. Pollock style background to draw the eye around the whole painting. Three was considered the number of understanding harmony, and wisdom (the power of three). 3rd time lucky is also a saying. A piece of artwork to bring you that luck.
