About

Vivid abstract expressionist painting titled "A Great Day," part of The artist Tom Hamil (American, b. 1928) Chinatown series. Signed and dated lower center edge "Hamil - 85". Signed and titled on verso. Condition: Excellent. Presented in rustic painted wooden shadow box frame. Image size: 24"H x 24"W. Framed size: 25"H x 25"W x 1.5"D Tom Hamil, was born in New York in 1928 and raised primarily in California. After attending the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, he returned to California to begin his formal art training at the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco (now known as the San Francisco Art Institute). He completed his education at the University of Washington with a Master’s Degrees and Doctorate in Fine Arts and Education. His first solo exhibition was held in 1956. Since then, he has participated in numerous one man shows, group shows, and has been represented in galleries in the US and Mexico. In addition to his painting, Hamil has authored and illustrated a number of books. While at the Naval Academy, he received recognition for his paintings, drawings, and illustrations. Listed among Hamil’s many awards and honors are a Ford Foundation Fellowship and an Award of Excellence from the American Graphics Society. Currently, he lives in Zirahuen, Michoacan, Mexico and Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Hamil’s statement: “I am a man who paints. Colors are the notes with which I play my music—honky tonk, jazz, blues, classical—expressing the rituals, funerals, fiestas, carnivals—in this, the circus of my life, I do not paint what I see, merely, I paint what I am.”
