Burton Hands paints primarily with oil paint in an impressionist style. Whether his subject is a landscape or a figure or a still life; the rhythmic strokes of his brush applied rapidly to his canvas, result in paintings with vibrant colors that capture the fleeting effects of rays of sparkling sunlight and cool interesting shadow patterns.

Hands frequently travels to locations in Europe where he particularly enjoys the challenge of plein air painting. His belief that the Impressionist movement was the last great movement in art, has only been enhanced by his experience in painting in the footsteps of Monet and the other masters of French Impressionism.

Hands has studied with some of the best artists from the Art Students League in NYC and in the west. Hands has received many national awards and has been in exhibitions in New York City; Washington, D.C.; Jackson, WY; Santa Fe, NM; Scottsdale, AZ; Carmel, CA and Genouilly, France.
