Painting

Gail Bunting prefers to call herself a naturalist who paints rather than an artist, not only because she is a self-taught painter but because the study of nature has been a life-long passion. She grew up in the Hudson Valley, where her mother taught her a love of woodland flowers and a hopeful outlook regarding the existence of elves and fairies. Her father taught her a tender regard for all small creatures that were not eating his vegetable garden. In her diversified life she has been employed in book production, horse training, wood working and dairy farming. Gail has devoted the last five years to developing her unique style as an artist in the medium of egg tempura. While it is painstaking to work with, she favors this medium because it enables her to execute the most accurate representations of those things she loves, and to instill in them a sense of the Mystery, which she believes connects all living things.

Gail’s work has been exhibited at the Arnot Museum in Elmira, the Carrie Haddad Gallery in Hudson, the Kubiak Gallery in Oneonta, the Mountaintop Gallery in Windham, the Mural Gallery in Stamford, the Roger Tory Peterson Institute in Jamestown, the Sweetheart Gallery in Woodstock, the West Kortright Center and annually at the Stagecoach Run Art Festival in her hometown of Treadwell.
