Beyond the Hedgerow is a 30x30x2 inches canvas print of an original painting by Gill Bustamante. It comes in a white wooden floater frame (frame with slight gap between the canvas and the frame so it appears to ‘float’). The dimensions, with the frame, are 31.5x31.5 inches. The depth of frame is 2 inches (stands out from the wall by 2 inches) and the width of frame is ½ an inch. It comes with a certificate of authenticity and free gifts from the artist. The canvas was printed with fade resistant ink and has a matte varnish for protection. It can be cleaned with a soft dry cloth if needed.
See video for example of the frame (not the same print)Beyond the Hedgerow is a print of an oil painting impression of the view through an April hedgerow across fields to a lake beyond. The back ground of the painting shows green meadows and trees and a glimpse of a lake between them. The foreground shows a knot of brambles and blossom and spring foliage that are painted in a semi abstract impressionist style. The painting was inspired by a walk I took near Bewl Water in Sussex. I like the feeling of being able to see something alluring but of having to be able to get to it (analogous to life generally I think). Hedgerows always fascinate me – especially the really ancient ones as they consist of many kinds of flora and fauna and are vital habitats for birds and animals. They act as both barriers and protection and I have tried to show this dual purpose – to a walker it hurts to go through them but as someone who loves wildlife and landscapes I love them!
