Shop White Hart's Summer Valley Canvas Print by artist Gill Bustamante available at Artist.com. Check out the Canvas Print collections available at Artist.com.White Harts Summer Valley is a 30x40x1.5 inches original oil on canvas of a summer wildflower meadow with a white hart. The white hart (albino deer stag), looks out over his summer valley from behind an art nouveau style abundance of poppies and other wildflowers. To his right is a valley that hints at a lake below and trees shimmering in the background. I painted this in December in England as I needed a reminder of the gorgeous proliferation of the flora and fauna of summer. The white stag is a reminder of one I saw years ago in a red deer herd from the Bluebell Railway train line in Sussex. It is always magical to see deer but a white deer is even more so. I would love to see him again but can meanwhile paint him and make him real that way. The edges are white and the canvas is deep edge so frame not needed.
I am a professional artist based in Sussex and I paint large original landscape and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.
My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Deco, a little Art Nouveau and whatever mood I am in that day.
I am inspired by the patterns of nature and the energy, colours and spaces of the landscapes and animals around me.
I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.
All of my paintings have a story added in to them - sometimes humorous, sometimes mystical, sometimes with a message of hope or encouragement.
My aim is to make art that offers a glimpse of spaces and possibilities where people can escape the manic pace of life and imagine themselves somewhere better – even if just for a little while.
