Rick Hamilton
South Portland, Maine

Richard Hamilton began painting 15 years ago when he noticed a young neighbor painting outdoors. It looked like such fun, so he purchased his first materials and has been hooked ever since. Inspiration often strikes during conversation or listening to the radio. “Someone may say a certain phrase or lyric and in my head I will say ‘That sounds like a painting!’” Richard paints to make connections with people, and loves to hear how his work makes others feel. He fondly remembers one collector remark that, out of the 400 artworks in his collection, his piece sparked the most conversation.

I was lucky enough to receive Dance Contest Havana, 3AM for Christmas. I am so excited!! I have looked your art work up so frequently over the last year I felt I knew it intimately and when I opened it -- It was better than I expected. It makes me giggle and it just simply brings me joy. Joy - the greatest gift. Thank you for creating this piece. It will forever be happiness for me, my husband and the kids love it too!

This piece is perfect for our foodie family. It's humorous and a great conversation piece.

At Your Service. I use the crown in many paintings to symbolize a king. Maybe this server used to be a king?Is this a sign of humility for a past king?Or does he just see himself as a king?
