My wife Carmen helps me a lot as do a couple of the kids grown but not forgotten! As always, please feel free to contact me directly with any questions about the work or commissioning a custom work.
The smaller paintings (8x10 and smaller) are usually not signed or dated or named. They are simply studies and oil sketches and though they are pretty snazzy in their own right, they are not the same as the larger more developed easel paintings.
That said, let me know if youd like me to name or sign your painting. Many of my paintings have thick paint and can take a while to cure completely. The thick passages may still be a bit soft.
With a few weeks cure time the paint will stiffen and the new aroma of natural walnut oil will fade completely. Please be aware that my paintings are meant to be viewed FRAMED.
As fantastical as they may be and as pleased as you might be with your winning of my unframed little masterpiece be aware that the magnitude of your ocular felicity will increase exponentially as soon as you see the painting framed. They are best viewed and enjoyed with a simple profile dark or gold leafed plein air or craftsman style frame like the one pictured.

Enjoyment of any given painting will increase greatly when viewed while FRAMED at eye level on any wall. I strongly suggest having a frame ready for its first viewing or...
Drive the unopened package directly to your favorite frame shop without anyone ever seeing the painting in its naked state. I can make a painting to your size and design specifications... Or another version of your favorite scene of a W Hawkins original. Just send me a note requesting information about special order paintings and I will get back to you.
I can make another version of any of my paintings you see here or on the the blog link below, on the canvas size that best fits your needs. This painting was made in the studio. I typically work from reference images such as past paintings, studies painted from life or photographs. I have done quite a bit of painting "en plein air" but mostly I paint in the studio creating works that are either inspired by references mentioned above or from the many fond and indelible recollections of the over 3000 paintings I've made over the past 30 years.

Hawkins - A friend and I were just at the south rim of the Grand Canyon and had the opportunity to see your painting at the Kolb studio Museum - we didn't know you had one there. We walked in to view the paintings, spied one that looked like it was one of yours and were so pleased to see that we were right. It was great to see your work on display! Bill, I received the painting last week.
It is everything I hoped it would be. The frame is fantastic as well. I haven't found one that well made in years!I received your painting today. I will enjoy it from now on. The frame is perfect, too. Member Oil Painters Of America & California Art Club.
