This time I`m following another love of mine; photography. Black and white film, no filters, no touch-ups. 100 personalities in black and white. Come check it out at my new blog site, scotthamiltonart.com and let me know what you think!
No, not really. Just the name… I have been away finding myself, and it has been good. I will leave this site up for my own reference, (it’s always good to look back), but in the meantime I’ll be charging ahead with new work, new expressions, new discoveries born from incessant exploration. Shouldn’t that be what art is about? Please come and find me and if you like what you see, let me know! This site was started with the concept of using visitor’s comments as the engine, and a beautiful community and some lasting connections sprouted from it.

“When you know yourself you are empowered. When you accept yourself you are invincible.” ~Tina Lifford
The phrase, “put your best face forward,” is presented quite literally in this piece, along with as much varied meaning the viewer takes from it. A continuation of my journey of getting away from literal translations in realism.
I have recently found a lot of peace in the notion of accepting myself for who I am, rather than who I want to be or think I should be. The unfinished side of the face is a reflection of how we are all a work in progress; the expectation to be perfect, (either in our own eyes or in the view of others,) only leads to the damaging of self worth.
Stats vary, but at least one million selfies are posted every day. What drives this phenomenon? How do you want to be seen?
~Love yourself, (because you are worthy!) just the way you are.~
Are you a realist? If so, what kind of realist are you?
If not, what’s your angle? I’m interested.
5 minute goodnight sketch from imagination. Goodnight!
Ok so I lied, this is nothing like what I said I was going to do but hey- I should just keep my mouth shut more often…
This was really fun for me, a welcome departure from the realism, which I do so wrestle with at times.
If you like it, let me know! Thanks,
You may recognize this as a drawing I posted last year; I’ve also taken the liberty of renaming it. (Hey it’s my picture and I can do whatever I want with it…) Really though, this was a great way for me to get the brushes out without having to think too much- just what I needed to kick off a new year.
Enjoyed the process, feel free to leave your honest opinion!
Intended to be a quick study for a larger work; got a little carried away as this is the first drawing I’ve done in a while. (A wee hiatus). This year I will be focusing on imagery which combines vintage machines with the human figure. Click on the image for a closer look.
Thanks for watching,
