Paintings of Figures, Still Life, Landscape & Abstract works


Welcome to my website

Sally Hamilton has been painting and participating in art shows in Santa Barbara, California since 1990. She enjoys experimenting with different media and setting new challenges for solo exhibits. For about ten years she focused on plein air landscape painting and still enjoys painting outdoors with friends in the Santa Barbara art community. She has continually taken life drawing classes and is working on realistic and abstract ways to paint the figure in oil. She has also explored abstraction using oil, acrylics, and pastel, and paints still lifes in oil and acrylic.

I love the sensation of being physically and mentally absorbed by creating a drawing or painting.

My vision actually becomes clearer and more attuned to color and shapes. When driving home after an afternoon of painting I notice that I see the colors in shadows and compositions jump out in a heightened way. One of the wonderful things about painting is you can do it all your life. read more
