About the artwork

Making an Appearance is a large oil painting in semi-abstract art-nouveau style of a peacock appearing in a bluebell wood. It was inspired by the wonderful bluebell performance we had in spring 2021 which never fails to make everyone feel happier. The edges of the painting are blurred so that your eye moves into the centre clearing and there are multi layers that suggest light through trees. A pink blossom tree is on the left and a peacock is on the right and is transparent as he is not fully formed. It is a magical painting as befits a bluebell wood in full bloom. This particular bluebell wood glade is near Cowden in Kent. I painted it with the colours and atmosphere in mind rather that botanical details and am happy that I can still smell the scent of the flowers and the blossom trees and hear the birds in the wood singing when I look at it. The peacock was added afterwards as I did hear a peacock in one of the old mansion house properties around Cowden. I wished he could be in the trees among the bluebells as his blue and green pearlescent feathers would have been perfect. This is him making an appearance curtesy of artistic licence. It is 40x40x1.5inches, white edges, ready to hang.

Gill Bustamante

*Gill Bustamante B.A. – Artist and Art Tutor, Sussex.* My name is Gill Bustamante and I paint large contemporary landscape and seascape paintings in oil on canvas. They are mostly inspired by the Sussex landscapes I see around me where I live. My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Nouveau and something I term ‘memory impressionism’. This is where I go walking somewhere rural, look at and absorb the things I see and experience, and then come home and try to capture an 'echo' of the place from memory, including any wildlife I may have seen. I completed a fine art degree in Brighton in 1983 and I have painted since I was three. It always makes me happy along with cake, bunnies, driving errat... (see more)
