James R. Hamil spent 15 years as an artist for Hallmark Cards in Kansas City, MO. In 1973 he opened his own studio and gallery to devote full time to paintings and commissions. Born in Hastings,NE in 1937, Hamil graduated from the School of Fine Arts at the University of Kansas in l958. A fondness for Colorado and its endless inspirations for paintings led Hamil, and his wife Sharon, to spend several months each year as residents of Steammboat Springs causing them to feel "like they truly belonged there." Two earlier books of Hamil's paintings reflect the breadth of the artist's eye as he has traveled the countryside of the heartland. In 1975, Hamil collaborated with his journalist father on FARMLAND,USA, a bicentennial project of Farmland Industries. In 1984 Hamil, with his wife Sharon, created RETURN TO KANSAS, a book of nearly 100 of Jim's paintings showing the diversity and beauty of the state. Sharon Hamil is a retired junior high school teacher. She is a graduate of the University of Kansas. Jim and Sharon make their home in Overland Park, KS,, where Jim also has his studio.
A new book by watercolor artist J. R. Hamil features 30 years of Colorado paintings by the renowned Kansas City artist. COLORADO TREASURES includes 97 paintings of Colorado landmarks ranging from the Garden of the Gods to the narrow gauge rail line from Durango to Silverton. Favorite Colorado past-times - skiing, fly-fishing, hiking, sailing and sightseeing - are depicted in luminous watercolors that capture the essence of this unique place.
