Midsummer Jubilance

Title: Midsummer Jubilance
Description: Midsummer Jubilance is a big joyful oil painting of poppies in a summer meadow under a tree. It is semi-abstract and slightly art nouveau in style. 40x40x1.5 inches. The intention of this painting was to show the way that nature competes, especially in summer, to get the attention of what it needs. In the case of poppies, it needs bees and other poppies, sunlight, water and possibly many other things. I love how in spring and summer this desire to be seen reaches a peak and have tried to show the sheer jubilance of a simple clump of summer poppies. The tree behind has its branches spread wide and reaching outwards which adds to the energy of the landscape. The location that sparked the idea for this painting was on some hills in Sussex where I sat under a tree last summer and simply enjoyed watching the flowers, smelling the scent of them and hearing the buzz of insects. It is a simple painting with a simple idea and is dedicated to everyone else who loves nature and seeks to keep it safe and thriving. Painted on deep edge canvas, edges white, ready to hang and with certificate of authenticity from the artist.

Gill Bustamante

Artist Biography:

Gill Bustamante is a professional artist based in East Sussex who creates large semi-abstract landscape, seascape and wildlife paintings in oil on canvas. Her painting style is very distinct and often fuses art-nouveau, impressionist and semi-abstract techniques with traditional portraiture that reflect her love of nature, animals, birds and the flora and fauna of the landscapes around her. She loves the ancient landscapes of England and her paintings often reflect the magical elements that such landscapes have. Gill’s main working method has been the development of a painting style she terms ‘memory impressionism’. This method involves going walking somewhere, looking at and absorbing the things she sees and experiences, and then returning home to her studio to try and capture an echo or essence of the place from memory - including any wildlife she may have seen. By this method, she captures precise moments in times at different seasons and the feeling she has about them. Gill completed a fine art degree in Brighton in 1983 and has painted since she was three. In her own words: “Painting always makes me happy along with cake, bunnies, driving erratically, BBC 6 music and totally irreverent comedy”.
