"All art is an escape to somewhere you want to be or a feeling you want to have. People see different things in my paintings because we all have different backgrounds and feelings," he says. "Women occupy a special niche in my sensitivity. They express more storytelling ability. There's more magic in them."
I'll start with the first painting I ever saw of his, which is probably still my favourite.
A Mother's Pride
Casting Her Shadow
Comfort In Solitude
Forever A Mystery
Wonders Of A Woman
Incidentally Steve Hanks doesn't portray strictly nude subjects; he has also done some gorgeous vignettes which often feature children at play. Check here for more of his work.
